Templeton market vandalized again

July 21, 2015

glassA vandal or vandals targeted the Templeton Market & Deli earlier this month, marking the third incident of vandalism at the business in the past 16 months.

Shortly after 12:35 a.m. on July 12, an alarm went off at Templeton Market & Deli. San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the business at 390 South Main Street within four minutes, but they did not locate any suspects.

The deputies found a broken glass door on the south side of the building, according to a sheriff’s office news release. Last year, vandals twice threw rocks through windows at the market.

Around 1:35 a.m. on March 30, 2014, a vandal threw a rock that broke windows on the south side of the business. The second incident took place at around 12:20 a.m. on June 25, 2014 and resulted in approximately $1,500 in damage.

Sheriff’s investigators have yet to locate anyone suspected of committing any of the acts of vandalism. Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the vandalism.

First and last times I shopped there the prices were outrageous and the staff was outrageously rude. If they want to attract anyone other than vandals they need to look into themselves and their business practices.

Umm it’s a convenience store. They usually are for convenience and not known for pricing. Hence why you don’t see shopping carts there.

Free lodging for the night guard, how Templeton has changed.

They must have slighted someone. Maybe they have the wrong flag flying or some other offense causing issue…

Maybe they are non-union.

When they catch the perp(s) let the owner of the market throw a few rocks at their head(s). Knock a little sense into them.

Cameras would be a great idea after three incidents.

As long as they don’t get those blurry, crappy, fuzzy one’s that most stores seem to use.

Aaaaa yes officer from the image I do think it may have been human.
