IMLAY CITY —Somebody had a big thirst early Monday morning. So big that he couldn't wait for a local establishment to open its doors to purchase something to quench it.
Police Chief Arlan Winslow reported that around 4:15 a.m. a suspect executed a "smash and grab" at Len's Party Store. Shortly after, he exited the M-21 business with two bottles of unspecified booze under his arm.
The suspect, described as a Hispanic man wearing a white tank top and beige shorts, had attempted to enter the building through the rear door.
Failing to do so, he moved to the front of the store, where he hurled an object through the front door window to gain access.
