PETERS­BURG — On Satur­day, Sept. 30 at ap­prox­i­mately 11:20 p.m., the Peters­burg Bureau of Po­lice re­sponded to an alarm ac­ti­va­tion in the 3500 block of S. Crater Road.

Po­lice ar­rived to the scene to dis­cover that the busi­ness, Bat­ters Choice, had been bur­glar­ized. En­try was gained into the busi­ness by the glass in an en­try door be­ing smashed. Sur­veil­lance video from the busi­ness cap­tured what is be­lieved to be a male and fe­male en­ter­ing the busi­ness. Both sub­jects pic­tured in the video are ob­served go­ing be­hind the counter and tak­ing two base­ball bats val­ued over $400 each. As the pair ex­ited the busi­ness, one re­moves a third bat (value un­de­ter­mined) from a dis­play stand, and both flee the busi­ness.

This is the third bur­glary that this busi­ness has ex­pe­ri­enced. On July 6 and Septem­ber 24, po­lice re­sponded to this busi­ness lo­ca­tion for bur­glar­ies.
