Blotter: Break-in reported at area distribution company

Someone broke into an area distribution company in the 800 block of Interstate 35 on Tuesday night, Denton police said.

An officer arrived at the business shortly after 3 a.m. and found the main door open, according to reports. When the officer entered the business to conduct a security sweep, he found several open file cabinets and drawers, and the door to a closet had been forced open.

An employee who met with the officer reported that nothing was missing from the business. Police said they believe the burglars were looking for money at the location but left when none was found. No arrests have been made.
