Floodwood Police are asking for tips from the public to solve a convenience store burglary.

The Little Store, 124 West Hwy. 2, was burglarized at around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.  Officers responding to a security alarm saw someone exit from the back door of the business and flee into the woods.

An officer chased the suspect, and the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office responded with a tracking dog, but they could not locate the suspect.  A press release indicated there may have been more than one person involved.

Police asked anyone with information to call them at 218-476-2239 or 911.
