Two Marion businesses at opposite ends of Main Street were broken into Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning, according to police.
They were TC’s What Not Shop at 901 E. Main St., and Power Pros at 143 W. Main St.
TC’s What Not Shop owner, Theresa Carroll, said when she opened for business Thursday morning the front-door lock and dead bolt were forced open.
“Money in the main register, a second register, deposits, checks and receipts were gone,” she said.
No merchandise appears to have been taken, she said.
“I never thought anyone would do this, but I want other businesses to be aware and cautious after what happened here,” she said.
Carroll suggested that customers who purchased items Tuesday or Wednesday, July 17 and 18, and wrote a check or charged the item, should consider taking appropriate action with their bank or credit card company.
Carroll said she also contacted the Marion Police Department Thursday morning, to file a report on the break-in.
Clinton Jeffrey, Marion assistant police chief, confirmed Friday that money was taken from the business. Both break-ins, he said, are still under investigation, with few details available at press time about Power Pros.
