Metro police are investigating a burglary early Thursday morning after a restaurant’s alarm went off, alerting them of the break-in.
Officers arrived to the Qdoba Mexican Grill located at 5225 Old Hickory Boulevard in Hermitage around 3:30 a.m. and found the suspect had dropped in through the ceiling.
The safe was broken into and thousands of dollars were missing.
The thief also attempted to gain access to T-Mobile store next door by making a hole in the wall but was unable to get in.
Police said the store’s surveillance video didn’t capture the break-in and a suspect description was not immediately available.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Metro police or Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
