Karon’s Classic Diner suffered hundreds of dollars in damages when the business was broken into sometime between its closing at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and when employees arrived at 5 a.m. Wednesday to prepare to open for the day.
Owner Karon Briggs said the burglary resulted in approximately $800 in damage — including the loss of a new cash register which was stolen.
Briggs said she removes all cash from the cash register at the end of each day, leaving behind only change, and leaves the register open for the night.
“I’m puzzled about that,” Briggs said of the burglar/s’ decision to take the register as well as the less than $10 in change it contained. “I don’t know why they would take the register.”
In addition to the loss of the new piece of equipment, she said whomever broke in also broke a number of items in the display on which the cash register sat, as well as on the table sitting next to it.
