Just one day after Christmas, officers with the Gresham Police Department say PIE vs PIE was burglarized. However, the shop owner says she's not upset.

Lorissa Rose, PIE vs PIE's owner, says it wasn't the typical burglary. She says the thieves ate food, drank some of their liquor, and appeared to stay awhile.

"They could've stayed in here all night and I could've come in here and found them in here. And they could've just said, 'Hey, we just needed a place to stay for the night.' I would've been more than fine," she said.

Police say burglars broke glass on a side door to enter, then stole their cash register, stereo, and some juice.

"I'm sure they were cold. I'm sure they were hungry," Rose said this is the reason she's not angry about the break-in.

She said they didn't steal any pie, but they did eat one while they were inside.

"I didn't even know really how to feel. I was just like, 'Really?'" said Rose.

Rose tells FOX 12 it's been a rough year. She celebrated the holidays this year without her father who recently died, and her mother was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer shortly after.

"We are just trying to keep her legacy going, you know…It's very heartbreaking," Rose said.

Rose said she lost around $5,000 in the burglary, and another few thousand dollars in business. She says her employees also lost wages from being closed the last few days.

Rose is hoping to get a new POS system in Saturday and get back to making pies.

A small trough of low pressure moved over the Pacific Northwest on this first day of autumn, and it brought more gusty wind and an improvement to the air quality for most of us. The breezes will continue through the week, and other changes are coming soon.
