Deputies arrest a frequent store customer after beer is discovered missing.

Just before 4:00 a.m. Saturday, the Pitt County Sheriff's Office responded to an alarm at the Hustle Mart in Farmville.

When deputies arrived, they found the glass door shattered by a concrete block, which had been thrown at the door.

The store owner arrived and said two cases of beer were missing from the inventory.

Deputies say their investigation led them to 28-year-old Brandon Lee, a frequent customer of the store. Lee was arrested a few hours later.

The Farmville man is charged with breaking and entering, and larceny after breaking and entering.
