Store owner taking Baltimore Police department to court

BALTIMORE, Md. (WMAR) - A convenience store owner claims Baltimore City police forcefully removed and broke his surveillance system while investigating Detective Sean Suiter's death. On Tuesday Christopher Akpala will get his day in court.

Akpala owns The Food Mart on Bennett Place in West Baltimore which is on the opposite corner of the block where Suiter was killed.

Akpala says police broke his security system while looking for evidence in Suiter's case. Akpala is suing the department for full payment for his equipment and further damages of $10,000 for authorities “endangering his life.”

The case heads to Small Claims Court in late June.
