Elk Grove running store burglarized

An Elk Grove running store was burglarized early this morning in the second break-in since November, a co-owner said.

Elk Grove police responded to an alarm at about 1:15 a.m. at The Running Zone, 8470 Elk Grove Blvd., Officer Christopher Trim said. Police found the front glass door smashed by a rock and the cash register stolen, he said.

"It appears to be a smash-and-go," Trim said.

The register had "less than $100," store co-owner Mimi Veiga said. Nothing else was taken, she added.

The Running Zone, at 8470 Elk Grove Blvd., suffered a similar burglary in late November, Veiga said. Owners plan to install video surveillance equipment, she added.
