It’s tough to be a merchant in San Francisco — as Heathy Spirits discovered yet again today.
In the early morning hours today, thieves broke in to the Healty Spirits store at 249 Cortland to steal the cash register.
This is the second time this has happened to Healthy Spirits; a similar incident took place in July 2016.
Rami from Healthy Spirits tells Bernalwood:
This morning approximately at 5:30 I received a call from police notifying me of a break in at my business located at 249 Cortland Ave.
The video footage shows that one of the thieves opened the front door using a crowbar and the second thief enters and proceeds to yank the cash register and runs away with two cash drawers. The cash drawers had a small amount of money but the robbery leaves me with a broken front door and a very expensive POS system to replace.
This same scenario almost exactly happened back in July 2016 where the thieves were only interested in the cash register as well.
It is days like today that I choose to count my blessings and I spend my time thinking about how lucky I am to be a part of this wonderful Bernal family. I shall restore whatever was damaged as soon as possible and I can’t wait to be back serving our clients and our Bernalese family at large.
Here are additional security-camera photos of the intruder inside Healthy Spirits this morning:
