MORRISON, Ill. — Five Star Enterprises, a Stihl and Toro dealer located along Route 30 in Morrison, was burglarized sometime over the weekend, according to police.

Store employees arrived Monday morning to find the front window broken and around $9,000 worth of high-end Stihl yard equipment and chainsaws missing. Store owners said the burglary caught them by surprise, as there is typically little crime in the area.

Police are asking anyone with information about the burglary to contact them at (815) 772-7659 or the Whiteside County Crimestoppers at (877) 625-7867. There could be a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
