NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – Police are investigating the burglary of Target in Niles and are asking for help from the community.

Shortly before midnight, officers responded to a commercial burglar alarm at the store in the Eastwood Mall.

Upon arrival, officers found a vehicle was used to force entry into the fire exit doors.

Two LG flat-screen televisions were taken.

Police released photos of burglary on their Facebook page Tuesday.

Officers said the driver that smashed through the doors left some of the car behind. Police found a piece of an inside lift gate trim from a 2007-2014 Ford Edge/Lincoln MKX.

Police say the back of the white mid-size SUV will have damage and the hatch may not close properly due to it being used as a battering ram.

Those with information are asked to call 330-652-9944. ext. 2132 and ask for Detective Roberts, or they may email him at Aroberts@thecityofniles.com.
