SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Summerville Police say a man intentionally drove into the Oakbrook Exxon gas station and got away with the entire cash register.  This happened at the intersection of Dorchester Road and Ladson Road at 3:40 a.m. Thursday. 

When employees arrived to work there was shattered glass everywhere. 

Charleston Glass worker Scott Branham installed the glass at the gas station when it first opened more than 20 years ago. Thursday he was back to fix the glass windows and doors after the incident.

"It was a mangled mess, all this glass you see was in trash cans," he said.

Police say the cash register had $200 in it at the time it was stolen. The repairs for the broken glass are estimated to cost about $15,000.

The gas station used to be open for 24 hours, but it has new owners as of a  few weeks ago so it was closed  at the time of the incident.

Authorities say the suspect was driving a gray 2002- 2006 Nissan Altima and he got back in the car after taking the cash register. Police say he is 40 to 50 years old and about 6ft tall. If you know where the suspect might be police ask that you call crime stoppers at (843)554-1111.
