Critteraid Charity Shoppe broken into

A break-in at the Critteraid Charity Shoppe last week did not net the thieves much money.

A break-in at the Critteraid Charity Shoppe last week did not net the thieves much money, but it took a significant hit on the store’s fundraising work.

The break-in occurred overnight on Monday.

A total of $105 was taken, “which for us is a lot of money,” said Pat Smith of Critteraid.

“It wiped out the money we made on the holiday Monday.”

The store lost further as the locks had to be changed — at a cost exceeding the value of the money taken.

“The staff here were in tears on Tuesday,” Smith said. “I’m still very unhappy and sick about the whole thing.”

The store was not damaged and there was nothing else taken.
