Olivette, MO (KSDK) - Olivette Police have an overnight break-in investigation underway, a probe that is very similar to another crime at the same business earlier this month.

Police responded to the Smoke Land store in the 9400 block of Olive Boulevard around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday and found one of the front windows of the business smashed out.

Video at the crime scene documented by KSDK Photojournalist Chris Cross shows the broken window damage, as well as the plywood covered doorway into the store.  The boarded portion was from the previous smash and grab crime at the business just two weeks ago.

Police say they expect the same sorts of merchandise and cash were taken in the latest incident, although business owners will need to do an inventory to determine exactly what was taken from the store which sells a variety of tobacco products, liquors and wine.
