A thief broke into Hartley's Uniform Shop and stole nearly $4,000 worth of merchandise Wednesday night, according to a report from the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Donald Shapiro told officers that when he arrived at his shop at 1010 Druid Park Ave. at 9:15 a.m. Thursday, he found the front door had been pried open and a storage room door had been kicked in.

Shapiro said he was missing $3,000 worth of collectible rare coins, 10 pairs of Dansco Shoes valued at $600, 10 pairs of Nurse Mate Shoes valued at $350, and five Nurse Mate watches valued at $34.95, according to the report.

Deputies found a crow bar on the floor of the shop's office, but it was determined to be too rusted to be used for fingerprints, according to the report.

No, that is not cool at all.

No, that is not cool at all. However, why on earth were there $3,000 worth of collectible coins in the store? That just seems weird to me.

We should be able to store

We should be able to store our valubles under lock and key. Nowadays even those who do spend a fortune on an alarm find the theives have come and gone before anyone can respond.
