Police still investigating Dollar General robbery

DESLOGE — Police are no closer to solving the burglary of the Desloge Dollar General Store than they were two weeks ago. Desloge Police Chief James Bullock said his department is still waiting to conduct Voice Stress Analysis (CVSA) tests on several individuals.

“The case is still in limbo,” he said Wednesday.

Bullock admitted that there are a couple of suspects in the case, but would not give any additional information. He said the investigation is ongoing and he hopes to conduct the CVSA tests in the coming week.

CVSA technology is a lie detection method that records stress responses that are present in the human voice, when a person has psychological stress in response to a question.

Police were called to the Dollar General Store at 7:50 a.m. Sunday when an employee who was opening the store noticed all the money had been taken out of the safe.

The employee told police the front door to the store had been unlocked. Police haven’t said how the person gained access to the safe or how much money was taken. They also won’t give an exact time for the burglary.

Bullock did say that no other items have been reported stolen and there were no signs of forced entry.

The Dollar General Store is equipped with an alarm system, however the alarm was not set off during burglary. Bullock would not comment as to whether the alarm was armed at the time.

If anyone has any information about the burglary they are asked to call the Desloge Police Department at 573-431-1463.
