‘Semi Pro’ or ‘Not a Genius?’

Jolian Kangas, the owner of Northwest Motor Wholesale on ‘X’ Street in Eureka doesn’t know what to think about the man that tried to break into his shop twice this week. On the one hand, he said, the person had to be a “semi pro” because on Thursday morning “first thing [he] targeted lines coming off of surveillance cameras..[Then] he killed the power by busting the lock on the power box and cutting power.”

On the other hand, he says, “definitely not a genius” because “some time later they tried to break into the office through an old window that was boarded up; however, that alerted the security company and scared them off.”

Then, on Saturday, the alarm went off again. Nothing appeared disturbed and, at first, Kangas thought it must have been a false alarm but then he noticed that ‘someone had clambered up again…to move the camera.”

Kangas believes this is “someone who is very determined to break in and cause havoc if not at my place at another business.” He hopes someone might recognize something from the few images his security camera was able to capture before the lines were severed. “These people are still out there, and I for one am sick of it,” he said. “The more eyes looking out for this culprit and the better off we’ll all be.” Surveillance camera image of thief Surveillance camera image of thief

    Huh. All those hours spent scheming and trying to get into a building could be 10 or 15 bucks an hour at a normal job and not have to steal anything. That is assuming they can pass a background and drug test.
