What's wrong with this

What's wrong with this picture is it "happened between 5:30 p.m. Oct. 11 and Monday," which happens to be Oct. 29. 11 days to even notice and then report the crime. 11 days no one went to the office? An office with $37,000 worth of furniture and equipment and no one even went in there? Were they going to close the business anyway?
