Two Novi police officers were dispatched to the Jimmy John's on Beck Road on Feb. 14 because the front motion alarm was set off, according to a police report.
The police arrived at the business at 10:45 p.m. to find that the north glass door has been smashed open with a softball sized rock, the report said. Police were able to review the surveillance tape, which showed a male dressed in dark clothing, gloves and a ski mask break open the door with the rock then head to the cash registers, the report said.
The man then pried open one of the cash registers and found nothing inside. He also checked the open drawer of the other cash register and found it empty. He then ran out of the business after being inside for a short period of time, the report said.
The manager of the business said nothing was taken because cash is not kept in the registers after closing.
