Break in at my work
I work for a cell phone company & last night a guy threw a brick thru one of the windows & stole 4 phones within 17 seconds. I closed last night, and 5 minutes before close the guy came in the store. He was acting very shifty & kept his hands in his pockets & kept looking around the store. He really creeped me out. A car pulled up & he left quickly. After he left, the guy I was working with said he was really weirded out by the way the guy was acting also. We have security cameras at work, & as soon as we saw the tape, it was obvious it was the same guy. He was wearing the same clothes & even looked straight at the camera. It was obvious he had come in to case the store earlier. After watching the tapes back from when he was in the store earlier in the evening, we realized how quickly he left when that car pulled up outside, so now we are thinking it was possible he was going to rob us & got spooked by the car. I am really glad that car pulled up!
There is a subway store next to us that has been robbed & there used to be a liquor store in the shopping center that was robbed & broken into several times. They ultimately closed b/c they kept getting broken in to.
There are a lot of shady characters that come thru. There is a low income apatment complex behind the shopping center. And a lot of the shady people that live there have piled up shopping carts to climb over the fence between the apartments & the shopping center.
Sorry for the long post. I am just super freaked out, thinking about how possible it was, that he intended to rob us yesterday evening!
We will definitely be asking our manager to hire a security guard.
I'm done for awhile unless its TR Lavendar Stitch Joey Supers sz 30/31
