Colorado Springs — The Craft Colorado Handmade Market in downtown Colorado Springs was robbed from late Thursday night to Friday morning.
Local store partner Rise Goodwin said the thief broke through the back window at 11:22 pm Thursday and didn’t leave until 2:52 am early Friday morning.
“They stole the cashier and all the money from the vault. He was here for almost three hours,” Goodwin said.
She said she needed to look at sales from the beginning of the week, but estimates that the thief escaped with a blank check from her business account, in addition to $ 1,000 to $ 2,000.
“He looked up the T-shirt, picked what he wanted, and brought it with him,” Goodwin said.
Fortunately, she said the security camera captured most of his movements while he was in and out of the store. She said they believed he was a white man 5’7 to 6’0 feet tall and had a very clear walk.
“It’s more of a pillar,” Goodwin explained. “He takes his hand and shakes it a little behind his back.”
She said it was a walk she remembered seeing in advance and would now notice it if she saw someone walking that way.
“I don’t know what’s going on in downtown where people are trying to steal from a small handmade little shop,” Goodwin added.
Since then, they have stepped into the back window and said they have installed more security cameras in the store. Goodwin knows they aren’t going to get the money back, but they want to find the invading man.
“This comes out of our pocket as an owner,” Goodwin said. “If you want things, get a job and buy things. If you want cash, get a job and make cash. If you want to make money, I have millions of jobs. It’s sad that people feel they have the right to rob others. They are unaware that they are taking from their neighbors. ”
