Halifax Town Police and Halifax County Sheriff’s Deputies on Wednesday investigated a reported burglary attempt at Dunavant Engineering at 1010 L.P. Bailey Memorial Highway in Halifax.

Sometime after 7 p.m. on Dec. 11, someone unsuccessfully attempted to gain entry to the shop by damaging the door knob and attempting to pry open the steel door. The suspect or suspects also attempted to steal a 1993 Chevrolet pickup that was parked in the parking lot, damaging the steering column in the process.

Anyone with information regarding this burglary attempt is asked to call the Town of Halifax Police Department at 476-2526 or call the Halifax County Crime Line at 476-8445.
