Downtown Casper Business Burglarized For Second Time In A Month
A downtown Casper business was burglarized — again.
Earlier this month, two burglars broke into Platte Hemp Company during the middle of the night.
And it appears to have happened again.
Platte Hemp Company shared the surveillance video of a break-in early Sunday morning. In the video, the two thieves break a window, enter and steal something off the shelf.
For reasons unknown, one of the thieves decides to kick a glass counter.
Casper Police Department Public Information Officer said it's unknown of the two break-ins are related. She issued the following written statement to K2 Radio News:
