Sherman Police have opened a burglary investigation after at least one person broke into the Midway Mall over the weekend and caused damage to a jewelry store inside.
Sgt. Brett Mullen said officers responded to the shopping mall off Texoma Parkway shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday after receiving an activated alarm call from Taz Jewelers.
“Officers arrived and it was determined that the suspects gained entry into the mall by breaking the glass doors on the northwest side of the mall,” Mullen said. “They also gained entry into the Taz Jewelers store by cutting a portion of the metal security gate that closes off the store itself.”
Mullen said officers found a smashed glass display case inside the store, but employees who went to the scene were reportedly unable to identify any missing merchandise.
“It’s unknown, right now, what caused them to leave,” Mullen said of the suspects. “As of right now, nothing has been found to be stolen, so something likely alarmed them and caused them to flee.”
The Sherman Police sergeant said responding officers searched the mall and found no damage to any other stores inside. Mullen said the damage to the jewelry store was estimated at roughly $850, but an estimation regarding damage to the mall’s glass doors was not immediately available. No suspect or vehicle description was available Tuesday afternoon.
“If you have any information as to who may be responsible, please contact the police department,” Mullen said.

A Facebook page for Taz Jewelers said the store has operated within Midway Mall since 1998 and specializes in diamond, gold and silver jewelry.
