200 bags of ice stolen from Va. store
Many a summer party requires a late-night ice run, especially with this year's sweltering heat. But is that why someone broke into a Loudoun County convenience store to steal 200 bags of ice?
That's what Loudoun police are investigating.
Authorities say that sometime between Sunday night and early Monday morning, someone broke the lock on a conveniece store in the 38900 block of E. Colonial Highway.
They then hauled away 200 bags of ice from an ice cooler in the front of the store, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
That much ice would require a lot of effort to remove, and it certainly could cool quite a few beverages.
But the thieves probably weren't parched party-goers, according to police.
They believe the owner of the store is in the middle of a dispute with the company that sells them the ice, and police are looking into the possibility that the company might have stolen the ice as part of the feud.
