Columbus police are searching for a suspect after a pickup truck drove into a North Linden camera store Friday morning.
Officers were dispatched to Midwest Photo, 2887 Silver Drive, around 4:30 a.m. Sgt. Joe Albert said. He said a stolen GMC 4500 truck was used to smash through the front entrance of the building.
"Our detectives are investigating it as a breaking and entering," he said. "As officers entered the store, they didn't observe anybody in the vehicle, but they heard the emergency exit door on the north side of the building was open and the alarm was going off."
However, merchandise does not appear to have been stolen, said Midwest Photo owner Moishe Appelbaum. He believes the damage made to his store will cost between $75,000 and $100,000.
The business reopened at 10 a.m. Friday.
