"It just makes me angry that someone would do something like this," said Jeff Puckett. Puckett has owned Movie Magic in Irvine for about a year.
He says just as business has picked up, he's been burglarized.
"There was a large hole in the wall where the air conditioning unit had been," Puckett said.
Kentucky State Police say Movie Magic is one of three businesses on the same block that were broken into this week.
In Puckett's case, police say someone pulled off the air-conditioning unit attached to his store, crawled in, and stole about 50 dollars from the register.
He's still taking inventory on their games and dvds.
Also burglarized were Pizza Palace, and Meades Do-it Center - where police say the culprits crawled in through an upstairs office window and took an undisclosed amount of money.
Puckett has surveillance cameras, but he says the tapes were taken too.
Police believe the break-ins are related.
