Three burglars entered a Chevron gas station early Tuesday morning by cutting a hole through the back wall of the building.

Macon police responded to the store, 1257 Riverside Drive, at 2:20 a.m. Tuesday, after being notified of an audible alarm, according to the police incident report.

The officers arrived to find the hole cut in the back wall leading to the bathroom, and another hole had been cut in the wall between the bathroom and a storage closet, the report said.

After they called the gas station owner, the officers looked at video surveillance footage which showed three people wearing all black with black face masks and gloves entering the store and breaking into the office. The burglars stole $1,100, damaged the office door and cut the wires to the alarm system, the report said.
