---- — ANDOVER -- Police are investigating a break at a cleaner’s on North Main Street in which a healthy amount of cash was reported stolen.

The owner of John Anton’s Cleaners notified police on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 3:37 p.m. that his building had been broken into sometime after 6:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Lt. Edward Guy.

Drop bags in two locations inside the dry cleaner’s were missing less than $1,000 in cash total. Credit card receipts were left behind, and Guy said police have no reason to believe customer information was compromised.
