Lower Southampton police responded to an alarm activation at a Bustleton Pike business to find the door smashed, a search of the area turned up no suspects.

Shortly after midnight Wednesday, the glass break alarm activated, police arrived and saw the front door, of the National Auto store located at 333 Bustleton Pike, had been smashed. They proceeded to clear the building, no suspect turned up. A K9 unit from the Upper Moreland Police Department was called into to help search for a suspect.

Police found the cash register drawer open and empty. The key holder for the business told cops that the drawer is left open at night, and the money is kept in a safe in the back, the safe seemed untouched, according to police.

The K9 was on the trail of the suspect until the scent stopped near the intersection of Bustleton Pike and Street Road.

The key holder reported that nothing else from the store appeared to be missing, police said.

A clue was discovered, the key holder said that the counter was cleaned at the end of the night and now there was a large smudge on it, believed to be a palm or finger of the suspect. Police tried to lift the print but the counter was too porous.
