Local coffee shop Brewed Awakenings suffered a break-in on Saturday morning, causing them to lose a day’s worth of business. Brewed Awakenings owner, Kika Smith, says she believes the break-in happened early on Saturday morning, right before her employee arrived at the shop around 6:00 am. The alarm had just been tripped and the police got there almost immediately, but unfortunately the culprits were gone.
The robbers got into the shop by breaking the front door. They stole the cash register with a $250 float and $50 in cash from the sale of Sweetheart Brunch tickets. “It’s more annoy- ing than anything,” Kika said, who was in a pretty good mood on Sunday morning when the coffee shop reopened. “It could have been a lot worse.”
A Facebook post on Saturday morning telling customers that the store would be closed garnered over 100 comments with people showing their support. Lots of people in the community, from the police officers to other local businesses stepped up to help them get back on their feet. “We want to say thank you for the outpouring of support we have received,” Kika wrote on their Facebook page. “What a community we live in”
