The Sheriff's Office is investing an overnight smash-and-grab at the Radio Shack on Veterans Memorial Drive, Batavia.
An inventory of what was stolen is not yet available, but the thief or thieves made off with at least a number of smartphones that may have significant retail value.
The call of a break-in reached dispatchers at 12:38 a.m. and deputies arrived on scene two minutes later.
By that time, the glass door was broken through, the merchandise stolen and the perpetrators gone.
Investigator Roger Stone said at this early stage there are few leads to go on. An attempt to obtain information from surveillance cameras in the area has yet to yield results.
Anybody with information that may assist in the investigation can call the Sheriff's Office at (585) 343-5000.
