COOPER CITY, Fla. – Surveillance video shows a duo’s early Friday morning attempt to break into a sports card store in Broward County failed.
The two persistent vandals struck the store’s impact-resistant windows with sledgehammers about 30 times — but the glass held up.
“Thank God we spent a lot of money on some good glass,” said Aaron Amarant, a co-owner of the store.
“The police are investigating and they have a good feel for who attempted the break-in,” the AA Mint Cards user wrote adding, “It is sad to see attempts to destroy not only everything we have worked so hard to build but a place where the hobby can come together.”
Amarant said the burglars should go find a way to learn a new skill. The damage they caused was assessed at some $10,000. Workers boarded up the windows on Friday afternoon.
“It’s not a good goal to break into here,” Amarant said.
Deputies were asking anyone with information about the case to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
