ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - St. Louis Metropolitan Police rushed to a National Rent-to-Own store in the Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis City after a smash-and-grab burglary early Friday morning.

Police said a witness called 911 after a gray or silver Dodge Ram pickup truck back into the rear of the store.  That was at 4:11 a.m. Friday.  Investigators said several flat-screen televisions were taken.  The suspects may have left some of their loot behind.  A flat-screen with “National Rent-to-Own” written on the back was lying near the scene on Sarah Avenue and McPherson Avenue.

Store managers looked over the scene and shook their heads.  Officers looked at the smashed cinder blocks and steel door, searching for evidence.

Police are looking for a gray or silver Dodge Ram pickup truck with heavy rear-end damage.
