Jeff’s Trading Post & Repairs has been at 238 N. Main Ave. for about two weeks, and the bars Jeff Decker ordered for the windows should be up any day now.
Two thefts in one week and a smashed front window made the bars necessary, the 21-year-old pawn shop owner said Friday. Three thieves smashed through his storefront Wednesday and grabbed cellphones, cameras and computers.
It happened to him in December, when the business was new and at a different location. He said he wasn’t prepared then. “Now I’m really prepared,” Mr. Decker said.
