A bunch of burglaries in Brownsville have a group of business owners upset and they say thieves won't stop targeting their shopping center in Brownsville's South Price Plaza.
Retro, Edible Bouquets and Destiny's Hair Salon all got robbed on Monday night at the South Price Plaza and now one of the business owners who rents at the plaza is fed up with the crimes. Thieves left behind shoe prints and broken glass and took off with plenty merchandise in the past few weeks. Business owners at the plaza say that the burglaries are constant and hurting their businesses.
Owners say the loss of equipment and business is hard enough but they are also hit with making and paying for the repairs. Business owners are asking the police and property management for help in stopping the burglaries.
Police say they do plan too patrol the area more often and the owners of the plaza are looking into several security measures including burglar bars.
