Centre Street Bizs Burglarized, Doors Smashed; Security Tips Provided to Commercial Shops
Centre Street businesses J.C. Fruit Shop and When Pigs Fly recently had their front doors shattered, and had cash and items stolen. Both businesses were broken into during the early morning of May 12. J.C. Fruit Shop (606 Centre St.,) and When Pigs Fly (613 Centre St.) have since reopened, according to an email from JP Centre/South Main Streets. JP Centre/South Main Streets sent out the email to area businesses, letting them know about the robberies, and provided tips on how commercial stores can protect themselves:
Empty your cash register each night and DISPLAY your empty cash drawer in full view of the street when closed. Often burglars are looking for cash that is kept in cash drawers overnight.
