Van Buren County Deputies are investigating a smash and grab robbery at Lawsons Citgo Gas Station in Lawrence early Saturday morning. Deputies got an alarm just after three when the burglar threw a big rock he found behind the station through the glass in the front door, and used a five-gallon bucket at the entrance that was used for an ashtray, to haul out ten cartons of cigarettes. Police say judging from the tire marks, it was a small to midsized car. The bucket was found about a quarter mile away from the station. Van Buren County detectives would like to hear from anyone who may have been passing by the station at the time, and might have seen a car parked there.
