Fire guts Garrison store; arson suspected

GARRISON, Texas (KTRE) - Investigators believe burglars broke into a Garrison convenience store early Friday and set the place on fire in order to cover up evidence. The fire gutted the building.

Police Chief Joel Barton said it appears burglars stole at least one cash register and a game machine from Little's convenience store, located on U.S. 59 North. A driver witnessed suspicious activity at the store and reported it to the sheriff's office around 2 a.m.

The sheriff's office is assisting in the investigation.

Barton said there are no suspects in the case yet.
