A burglar used a rock to smash an East Side gas station window and stole “significant amount of cigarette cartons” early Monday, Madison police said.
How often do you feel you’re paying too much to keep your car running? If you’ve had any car work done in the past year or so, you know repair costs are up, just like everything else.

No one has been arrested for the break-in, Fryer said.
Police ask that anyone with information on the incident contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014 or
