Juneau Police are investigating a theft at FoodLand IGA early Monday morning that involved a pair of suspects who apparently impersonated employees.
Two men arrived at the downtown store about 1:30 a.m. and told the overnight cleaning crew that they were supposed to stock the shelves.
“They were wearing IGA-logoed clothing,” said Juneau Police Lieutenant Dave Campbell. The two men were let into the store.
Members of the three-person cleaning crew later checked on the two stockers, but they had already left at about 3 a.m.
Also gone were cash drawers containing about $3000 that were located in the customer service area in the front of the store.
An exact amount of the stolen cash has not been determined yet.
No one was hurt during the incident.
No arrests have been made yet.
