HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) - Salvation Army officials confirmed Thursday morning that the Hannibal Family Store and Service Center was broken into overnight.

Officials from the Salvation Army were at the facility Thursday morning to check on the store.

"We are currently reviewing video surveillance footage from the store to gather additional information and cooperating with Hannibal detectives, who will be following up on leads," Operations Director Chad Rodgers said in a statement.

Hannibal police was at the business Thursday morning to investigate.

Embree says the store will be back open Friday morning.
