Missoula police report an attempted burglary early Wednesday morning in the 600 block of South Higgins.

Sergeant Colin Rose says the attempted burglary occurred a few minutes after 4 a.m, when 9-1-1 received an automatic alarm from the business.

Apparently, when the suspect broke the window, it knocked over a box inside the business, which triggered the alarm. Rose says no one was in the area when police arrived.
