Unbreakable Glass Stops Liquor Store Burglary
A downtown Sioux Falls business’s recent investment in unbreakable glass has paid off.
Police Lieutenant Galen Smidt says it happened early Monday at Sid’s Crown Liquor, at 330 South First Avenue, when someone’s burglary attempt was foiled:
“There is no entry that was made, but a large weight was thrown at the window which caused an indentation, but they’ve installed break-free windows. So the window was not broken and entry was not made.”
Smidt says surveillance video showed two men walking past the store around 3:30 Monday morning, when the burglary attempt is believed to have been made.
Police were called just after 8:00 a.m., but nothing was taken.
