The Evansville Police Department is investigating a robbery at a local gas station. 

Officers responded to the Shell gas station/Himalaya Food Mart located at the corner of Washington Avenue and Newburgh Road just before 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday after a commercial burglary alarm was triggered there.

EPD says that when officers arrived, broken glass was seen at the front of the store from where the door had been smashed.

It appeared that lottery tickets had been stolen from the store during the burglary, according to police.

A K9 unit attempted to track a suspect but was unsuccessful in doing so.

No arrests have been made in connection to the burglary at this time. Anyone with more information should call the Evansville Police Department.
