Smash and grab burglar targets thrift store that helps pet charity, owner says

The smash and grab burglar got little more than $100 for his trouble but he left a Wilton Manors thrift store in a $1,000 hole, the owner said.

The break-in at the Hidden Treasures Thrift Store happened about 11 p.m. Sunday when the burglar shattered the glass front door of the business at 2200 N.W. 9th Ave., and crawled through the opening.

“We lost, in the [cash] register, about $100 to $150 between change and singles and fives,” said Susan Martino. “But the real expense was the door that cost close to $1,000 to replace the glass at two o’clock in the morning.”

She runs the shop to raise money for the non-profit Pet Project for Pets that helps feed and care for the pets of people dealing with poor health or financial challenges. or 954-356-4303 or Twitter @WayneRoustan
