July 26--  Vidalia police are investigating a burglary in downtown Vidalia.

Police Lieutenant Jimmy Sims says Lee Discount Company on  Northwest Main Street was burglarized overnight Wednesday.

Owner Jan Lee says she discovered the breakin when she opened the loan office Thursday morning.  She said the thief entered the building through a bathroom window and cut utility lines to the building before entering to deactivate the burglary alarm.

She discounted rumors that a $100,000 or more had been stolen but confirmed that a significant amount of cash is missing.

Several years ago the office was robbed at gunpoint two times within a four month period.
