Thieves stole thousands in merchandise at detailing business

A car detailing business in Winchester has been targeted by thieves twice in two months.

The latest crime happened early Tuesday morning between 12:15am and 1:50am at SINister Fal Werx on Therese Drive.

After getting burglarized the first time, employees invested in surveillance cameras, "We didn't have anything the first time around. The day we found out we got hit, we installed the cameras,"says Brian Blankenship, the owner of SINister Fal Werx.

Surveillance footage shows two men wearing hats and bandannas breaking into the building. One man keeps watch outside while the other man takes his time inside. The suspect took all of the tools and equipment he could get his hands on. He also stole a gun.

Blankenship says,"The shop is pretty much closed down right now. We have no tools."

Employees tell 27 Newsfirst that in all, the burglars got away with $15,000 to $20,000 worth of material.

Blankenship adds, "Something needs to be done. If it's happening all around us, the city of Winchester has to do something."

Two nearby businesses were also targeted by thieves. The Clark County Sheriff's Department is investigating the possible connection.
