ONEONTA – Oneonta Police are investigating a burglary at the Superheroes in Ripped Jeans thrift store on South Main Street after the owners discovered on Monday morning the store had been broken into overnight. The store has low security so police have encouraged other business owners to ensure that they think about their businesses security and what they can do to improve it. For example, installing Verisure Smart Alarms is a sophisticated way to ensure your businesses protection. Other methods include getting security doors and shutters over your windows.
“We are truly disheartened to share that our thrift shop was burglarized over the weekend,” read a post on the store’s Facebook page. “This store is completely volunteer run and all the proceeds benefit the rescue. Not only did we sustain a loss, now we need to spend money on new equipment.”
