Hines needs a big German shepherd roaming the store at night.
Sorry this happened to a local business couple trying to keep some townspeople employed and serve the community.
Oh wait. That was a waste of sentiment since the burglars could care less about people or community. Probably can't read either.
Sounds to me like Hines needs to lock up the narcotics better.
And no, before some of you nut jobs say I'm taking the side of the thief, I'm NOT. I hope they catch him and put him in prison for a while. Along with any others who've done the same thing. But if you saw the length that ambulances have to go to to secure their drugs, you'd likely wonder why the pharmacy's drugs can be stolen in less than a couple minutes?
It is terrible that these people are having damage done, losing valuable sales items, etc. But if the narcotics (surely a small percentage of their wares?) were in a good lock box/safe, then maybe the smash and grabs wouldn't happen?
I grew up and had my child in the early days of making sure we picked up stuff that might harm a busy toddler.
I had a different take on the problem of toddlers getting into things. I simply taught him that lots of things that looked interesting were off limits, with no maybe. It worked.
Maybe it should be a signal to thieves that locked doors mean stay out. Maybe if we teach those thieves that there is no maybe about it, they would figure out that the only way to stay out of jail is to leave other people's property alone.
Locking up the narcotics better? They simply bring along better tools to get into them.
It's really bad when honest folks cannot lock doors and keep people out.
How about hiring someone to sit inside the store with a loaded pump shotgun overnight. I think there are very few criminals that will keep coming when they hear that slide cycle and that round go into the chamber. Would probably never have to fire it and would likely be a long time before that store is robbed again!
