Owner Patrick Romero says he’s been nervous since the break-in attempts. He says he can’t stop worrying that this might happen a third time.
Over the weekend, the suspect was filmed. Romero says he used a glass breaker on the windows. He failed and left. Then early Thursday he was back. For about five minutes, he tried to kick open the door with a crowbar. The alarm went off and he ran.
“Why come and play with a small business. To be honest, I don’t even know what he’s looking for. All of our belongings are secure and tied up at night, ”Romero said.
Romero hopes someone recognizes the man, then this will all end.
“To be honest with you, it hurts a lot. I can’t sleep at night. I always wonder if something is going on, ”Romero said.
