Editor’s Note: This story has been updated to remove information unrelated to the current incident.

Police want to know who stole money from a west Emporia convenience store. It’s being called a “theft” instead of a robbery.

“Financial cases take us a long time to work,” Capt. Lisa Hayes of the investigations unit said Tuesday. “There’s a lot of legwork to be done with that.”

Hayes said police were called to Casey’s General Store at 3184 West U.S. 50 around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. She declined to say how much money was missing until officers complete their initial reports. But she had no reports of any arrests.

Tips about the current case can be left with Lyon County Crime Stoppers by calling 620-342-2273 or visiting the Crime Stoppers Facebook page.
