Morro Bay, CA — On Tuesday at approximately 3:21 a.m., the Morro Bay Police Department responded to a report of an audible alarm sounding at Morro Bay Chevron, at 1798 Main Street, Morro Bay.
Upon arrival, officers discovered fresh pry marks to a door located at the rear of the business and an abandoned tool lying nearby.
A witness contacted police and reported hearing the alarm and then seeing two male subjects fleeing the area on foot. The male subjects were last seen running northbound on Sunset Avenue from Atascadero Road.
Investigating officers believe the activation of the business’s alarm may have helped prevent this burglary from being completed.
