12/26:  Authorities investigate an overnight break-in at the Hideout Harley-Davidson in Joplin.

Joplin Police got a call around 12:30 a.m.

Officials say the suspect's vehicle was still on site when they arrived, but immediately fled the scene, damaging a motorcycle in the process.

The vehicle broke through two glass doors on the building.

Due to the ongoing investigation, information on any stolen property has not yet been released.

Newton County officials located the vehicle this morning and discovered it was stolen yesterday.

Officials say the alarm system triggering the call has greatly helped the investigation.

"Alarm systems are always a good thing to have at your business or your home," said Corporal Andy Blair, Joplin Police Department. "We were able to respond there quickly due to the initial call coming into dispatch from the alarm company, which got us there in the amount of time to identify the suspect vehicle that caused the damage."

No injuries were reported in the incident.

Authorities are still working to compile information on any suspects in the case.
