Assistance in crash, burglary in Silver Creek store

SILVER CREEK — Chautauqua County sheriff’s deputies are requesting the public’s assistance through the WeTip program after a crash and burglary early Monday morning at a store.

At around 2:18 a.m., deputies responded to Dollar General at 1360 Routes 5 and 20. Through an investigation, it was found that two unknown subjects had driven a 1991 Chevrolet Blazer into the front of the building causing damage to the Dollar General Store. It appears the unknown subjects exited the vehicle and grabbed a safe located inside of the store and then drove off. The vehicle was later located in the village.

Any information regarding this incident please contact Investigator Eric Vara at 753-4910.
