Niles WalMart Set On Fire Then Robbed

The Niles WalMart was closed down all day yesterday after a brazen early morning fire and robbery. The Berrien County Sheriff's Department says the whole thing started about 5 am at the 11th Street Walmart in Niles when a a man walked into the store, set a fire in the clothing department as a diversion, then smashed open display cases in the electronics department, grabbing a bunch of electronic devices and fleeing. The suspect was only described as thin, white and wearing a mask. The getaway vehicle - a newer model, dark, four-door sedan. Then Niles WalMart is planning to re-open this morning.
