Lincoln Police report another instance where a would-be thief tried to use some sort of torch to enter a coin store.

Just after 3 a.m. Friday, Lincoln Police were called to the Piedmont Shopping Center near Cotner and A Streets for an alarm.

According to Captain Jason Stille, evidence at the scene indicates the suspect attempted to use a torch to burn through the glass door at The Coinery.

The suspect is believed to have been scared off by the alarm and was not located when officers arrived.
