A small hole visible in a local business is much more than a small inconvenience after the business was broken into sometime Friday night or Saturday morning.
"My employee came in this morning to get everything going. I got a frantic phone call; she noticed that this store was completely flooded," said Q Meyers, owner of Q's Cakes and Sweets Boutique on Central Avenue.
The icing on top – the business's register was also stolen.
"I thought a pipe had burst so I'm thinking, 'Oh my gosh, did I leave the water on?'" Meyers said. "But once I heard about the register, I immediately felt my heart drop. I knew it was a break-in, I just knew."
Right next to her store, Meyers says someone unhinged a door, walked through the vacant part of the building, then gained access into the boutique's bathroom by cutting through the wall…as well as a waterline.
"We had a tasting scheduled for a wedding that we had to cancel," she said. "We weren't able to make anything for today, so we're not making money at all."
On Saturday, instead of baking, the business had a lot of cleaning ahead of them. In a video posted to Facebook, Meyers announced the shop would be closed in the meantime, and asked volunteers to donate supplies or their time to help in the cleanup process.
