HATTIEBURG, MS. (WDAM) - The Dollar General in the 2300 block of Lincoln Road in Hattiesburg was burglarized sometime in the overnight hours Wednesday.

Employees reporting to work at around 7:30 a.m. Thursday discovered the break-in and called 911.

When Hattiesburg Police arrived on the scene the employees informed them they discovered the lock to the office door had been removed and the safe was open.  An undermined amount of cash was taken from the safe.

Entry to the building was apparently made by peeling back the aluminum siding on the side of building.

Hattiesburg detectives continue to investigate the incident.
