A 4 Way Stop-N-Go in Lawrenceburg was the target of a knowledgeable burglar, according to the store's manager.

"Looks like he did this before," Jack Patel said. "He did like a professional job it looks like."

The manager said he and his wife arrived to work at the Dewey Drive store early Friday morning, only to discover the door was broken.

Patel said, "Me and my wife were both scared. We both are like what is going on?"

He said credit cards and lottery tickets had been stolen, plus the safe and ATM were both emptied.

They called police, who they said estimated there to be around $75,000 in damages.

Officers said this robber knew what he or she was doing, as they also got away with the store's security systems, leaving no pictures or footage behind.

"You never know what he looks like," Patel said about the burglar.

The manager is afraid of getting hit again, so he upgraded the store's security system.

"I hope somebody see or somebody heard and call the police. And I hope they catch that people."
