GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids police are investigating a break-in at Rylee’s Ace Hardware.

An employee could be seen sweeping up glass from the shattered back door of the store shortly before 9:30 a.m.

The break-in comes as authorities investigate four gun store burglaries within five days in Kent and Ottawa counties. However, Rylee’s no longer sells firearms and Adams says the store hasn’t for “quite some time.”
