CLARKSBURG, Ind. (WISH) - Store-owners in Clarksburg, Ind. are becoming frustrated with the number of break-ins that have occurred lately.
Robbins Gas Station and Convenience Store has suffered at least 10 break-ins since the shop first opened its doors.
Friday, a pair of thieves broke into the store and stole more than $500 worth of merchandise. The suspects busted through a window in the store and proceeded to enter the store after wedging themselves through a narrow opening next to the store's ice machine. They then loaded up backpacks and grocery sacks with cigarettes, chewing gum, beef jerky, cigarette lighters, lip balm and soft drinks, our partners at the Daily News report.
Store owners say the thieves also caused a significant amount of damage throughout the store.
"We're here to try and give people a place to shop that isn't far away," said Coletta Robbins of her store, which is the only one of its kind in Clarksburg. "We want people to respect that we're just trying to make a living and help others - like everyone else."
Anyone with information on the recent break-in rampage in Clarksburg is asked to call the Decatur County Sheriff's Department.
