Antique store robbed again
Sheppard’s Bear Den Antiques on Old Balsam Road was robbed overnight making it the second break-in at the store in the year it’s been open.
“When I came in to open the window behind the counter was busted open,” said owner Karen Sheppard. “They must have crawled through the bars.”
The thief broke a glass display case with rotating trays of jewelry and small items.
Among the $600 worth of missing items so far include a gold mesh dickie, gold mesh purse, several vintage mosaic bracelets, a women’s German necklace watch and a sterling silver charm bracelet with an Aunt Jemima charm.
