Auburn Police today were investigating a break at the Drummond Street Market, where it seems, nothing of great value was taken. Officer Robert Gosselin discovered the incident shortly after 1 o’clock this morning, and Officer Robert Dumais was dispatched to the scene. Someone entered the building by prying open a rear door, apparently with a screwdriver. Once inside, the office was ransacked, and the meat case, and two metal boxes were opened.
