Topsham police investigate Dairy Queen break-in

By Darcie Moore, Times Record

TOPSHAM, Maine — Burglars targeted Dairy Queen on Main Street early Tuesday morning. Police continue to investigate the crime.

Christopher Lewis, Topsham’s interim police chief, said a truck driver making a delivery to Dairy Queen at 3:20 a.m. Tuesday discovered the shop’s rear door had been smashed in. He called police.

Lewis said an initial review of the scene indicated that no money was taken. The intruders rummaged through items inside the building, and police await an inventory to determine whether they stole anything.

Investigators will review security recordings of the property, Lewis said.

They invite information from anyone who might have seen or heard suspicious activity near the shop to call 725-4337.

Lewis said burglars broke into the same Dairy Queen in March, at which time he said the door and cash register were damaged and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken. That case remains unsolved.
