A local pet store was the victim of a possible break-in at 3 a.m. Friday morning and Orange Police are working to put the pieces together as to a motive.

The manager of PetSmart at 55 Boston Post Road (next to Best Buy) said someone in a van backed into the front doors of the store, which broke the glass, but did not damage the interior doors.

He said the security alarm sounded and must have scared the driver off before he could get out of the van. The suspect did not enter the store and the only damage was to the front door.

PetSmart has been opening at 8 a.m., one hour earlier than usual during the holiday season, and the staff was able to clean up the mess and open on time this morning.

Assistant Police Chief Max Martins said the OPD is treating the incident as an attempted break-in, but it’s still too early in the investigation to come to any conclusion
