Shoplifters strike local mom and pop antique shop


The Vintage ETC… Antique Mall is asking for the public’s help in identifying two men who shoplifted several items during the middle of the day.

“They did a real quick clean sweep, grabbed what they could, put it in their pockets and took off,” Jeri Mandrell, the Store Owner said.

Mandrell said the video cameras in her shop caught the entire thing on tape. She hopes someone will recognize these bearded bandits.

“Were just a mom and pop business. We struggle and o have someone come in and steal from you. I just don’t understand it,” Mandrell said.

One of the men distracted the clerk while the other snooped around the shop Mandrell said. She said then one of the men stole jewelry off the counter while the clerk was getting him a cough drop.

“These people have no conscious and they just don’t care,” Mandrell said.

The store located off 50th and Ave U has their annual Christmas party Sunday. Mandrell said they’ve hired extra security to make sure this doesn’t happen again.

If you know who these two men are please contact please.
