A burglary epidemic hits a well-known business in Redding. Workers are at their wits end--and they're all out of ideas.
"I'm very pissed about this, and upset, and it's time to stop."
It's the 6th burglary for the Northern Trailer and RV Supply this year. The break-in happened on Victor Avenue in the storage lot sometime overnight.
"They entered one of the RVs through the door, and the other, they had to break a window."
Several RVs were broken into and items were stolen from inside. We talked to one man who had his RV broken into.
"They stole both the new flatscreen Tvs, they stole the GPS."
Call it bad luck, or just bad timing.
"We haven't used it in two years, so we were gonna start going next month actually, and then this happens."
Despite his losses, Lou is taking it all in stride.
"It's just a little bump in the road."
The owners, on the other hand, are worried that word of mouth about the rash of burglaries will destroy their business; even police are they might have to shut down their doors.
"I wouldn't worry about that happening. We've been here a long, long time."
Redding Police tell us the RV supply could use more surveillance, and that could help deter more break-ins.
Tom says there's only so much he can do to protect his business; but for now, his next step is to equip the RV supply with new security.
"We have alarms and cameras inside, but not outside yet."
Redding Police collected fingerprints from the scene today--they'll continue to investigate the incident and track down the burglars.
