“They stole our ATM machine and tobacco. But they didn’t just steal from a store … they went into our ‘home’ and stole straight from our family. A family trying to support a newborn recently out of NICU, a four year old, and a five year old. They stole trust,” a post on the store’s Facebook page reads.

” To those individuals that decided to break in and steal, it’s truly heartbreaking that it’s come to this point in your life that you have to do such acts. I hope it was worth it because you will be prosecuted! It’s a good thing we installed amazing security cameras,” the post goes on to say.
