David Milko is a co-owner of Boardanyone in Kenora, and he talks about their break-in over the long weekend. Thieves apparently knew exactly what they were looking for, as they broke glass on the front door, then turned left to smash the display case with watches, Milko noted.
"We're able to see what happened. Definitely still a devastating feeling. Devastating coming here seeing what happened to the business people worked so hard to get to today," he said, as staff continued to clean up in the background.
While he says they were able to open for business, he's hoping something can be done to prevent further break-ins at downtown businesses. There have been at least three others in recent weeks, creating a concerning trend.
"Everything's on the line for us. These are our careers," Milko said. "So, when we come in in the morning, or we get calls in the middle of the night, it's not a good call definitely. We're hoping in the future the problem can be taken care of."
