$20K in Damages, Items Stolen From Wayne Business

Neighbor of Hamburg Turnpike business reported the burglary Wednesday morning.

A Hamburg Turnpike business was burglarized with more than $20,000 worth of items stolen or damaged Wednesday morning.

Pete Albanese's neighbor called the Wayne Police Department to report a burglary at his business, on Hamburg Turnpike Wednesday shortly before noon, Wayne Police James Clark said.

"The neighbor noticed the front door was open. She left her house at 10 o'clock in the morning and when she returned home an hour and 48 minutes later, she saw that the door was open and called us at 11:48," Clark said. "We arrived shortly after."

Albanese said the Wayne Police was on top of the break-in.

"They were awesome," he said. "We were away and they called us on our cell phones, dispatched somebody immediately to my house, there were detectives here, they made sure the buildings were secure and came back the next day."

Albanese reported between $20,000 and $25,000 in damages and goods stolen from his business, including broken front and back doors, damaged filing cabinets, and missing products.

"This is hard to go through," he said. "We want everybody to realize this isn't over, the people in Wayne should know not to let their guards down; this stuff happens."

Clark said the incident remains under investigation.

Anything is possible. Deleting posts doesn't seem helpful either.

Lorri, Sad but true!! Kids are finding all kinds of things today to get high with. Freon is a gas that keeps your house cool. Kids have NOSE clue what that could do to your brain.If it cools your house,it will do the same thing to your brain.Hope this trend doesn't get as bad a the robberies!!!!!!
