Burglars hit MJ pawn shop, market

A lone suspect entered the pawn shop and targeted jewelry. Currently, investigators are still determining the amount and value of stolen jewelry. It is expected to be well in excess of $30,000, Chandler said.

All three suspects went inside the business. A blood trail was left throughout the Corner Market as one suspect injured himself while busting through the glass door, Chandler added.

The stolen truck was later located in Wilson County.
