A North Greene Street convenience store has been targeted by thieves for the third time since Nov. 26.

The Greenville Police Department reported officers were called to the Speedway at 500 N. Greene St. about 12:35 a.m. Saturday. On arrival they found the front glass door had been smashed and entry was made. 

An investigation is ongoing and further details were not available. The store is located just north of the Tar River across the Greene Street bridge.

It is the third recent break-in at the store, according to crime reports issued regularly by the department.
