Metro Nashville Police searched for a burglar who busted in the front door of a Madison Dollar General store early Friday.

The store is on Gallatin Pike North, just south of Alta Loma Road. According to investigators, the burglar busted the glass door and tried to break into the safe inside the store. But, the man was scared off by lights that detected movement.

Once officers got to the store, a K9 searched inside but couldn't pick up a scent.

Investigators said there were surveillance cameras that recorded the man inside the store. However, the only description officers would give us is that he was a white man.

The man was seen driving away in a white sedan.
