Police Describe Montesano Burglary as Smash and Grab

Police are reviewing surveillance video after two people burglarized C&T Food Mart on Pioneer Street in Montesano earlier this morning. Police Chief Brett Vance said he doesn’t use the term “smash and grab” often, but this pair or burglars broke out a window and were in and out of the store in less than 30 seconds.

Deputies with the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office responded to the store just before 4 AM Wednesday morning to find the window broken out and various food items on the ground nearby. Those deputies were backing up Montesano officers, who were assisting the Elma Police Department on a similar investigation.

Vance said surveillance video shows the bandits in the store for only a few seconds before leaving with food and cigarette lighters.
