Deputies say they’re investigating a business break-in in Coinjock.

That’s in Currituck County.

Investigators say 3 people forcibly entered a side door of the Currituck BBQ Company, removing a safe located in the office area. Surveillance video shows a female and two males fleeing the scene as one of the men carries the safe.

It’s believed the incident happened around 1 a.m. Monday morning.

The suspects are described as 20-30 years in age. The female appears to be white, short and slightly built wearing a unique coat. One of the males appear to be black, has a goatee, and possible cornrows. The race of the other male has yet to be determined.
