2 Clifton discount stores on Ackerman Avenue robbed

Two discount stores on Ackerman Avenue in Clifton were robbed early Saturday morning.

A surveillance video captured at Discount Liquors shows a man wearing a cap throwing a rock through the glass door to enter. He then attempted to shake open a register in order to steal the money inside.

When the locked register drawer wouldn?t open, he left the store and came back with an instrument that helped him dislodge the register and carry it out with him.

Dollar Mania was also robbed in the same way. After entering through a shattered glass door, the thief stole a lottery machine.

The owner of the liquor store says this is the first time in nine years the store has been robbed. Anyone with information is asked to call Clifton police.
