Break in at a Lamont Grocery Store

Lamont Foods suffered a break in during the early morning hours of November 28.

Owner KC Yoon was immediately alerted of the incident.

“I got a phone call a little after 4 a.m. in the morning (Nov. 28) from the security company. I came right away,” said Yoon.

Upon arriving at his store, Yoon found broken glass at the front door, but said he did not lose money or merchandise to the thieves.

“There was nothing to take,” he said. “I don’t have an ATM and we don’t keep money in the store overnight.”

Yoon’s security cameras captured the criminals during the break in and the footage has been relinquished to the police. He was unclear whether the perpetrators were male or female.

“On the recording I could see two thieves and another one driving the getaway vehicle while keeping a lookout,” said Yoon. “Only one of them got inside through breaking the glass at the front door.”

Yoon was unsure of the cost to replace the glass at his front door citing figures have not yet been available from his insurance company.

Yoon added that he has owned the Lamont Foods for eight and a half years. During that time, he has experienced two break ins with the last one occurring in 2014.
