The looters caused significant damage, however, little was stolen.
At Tom’s Burger in the College Center, burglars smashed a glass door to get in. The owner told KCOY the only thing missing was an empty cash drawer.
A few doors down from the burger restaurant, the windows were smashed at what appeared to be vandalism and a failed burglary attempt at Central Coast Headway, a center for drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
Across town at Ocean Avenue Liquor, the front door was smashed. However, the re-enforced glass prevented the looters from getting inside before neighbors called the police.
