A burglar forced open the back door causing about $700 in damage, pulled out the safe, took approximately $600 from the cash register and about $100 in donations to the Santa Maria Valley Humane Society. Workers at the The Mayor’s Place spotted the damage when they arrived to work early Wednesday morning.

San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies are hoping a business next door captured video of the burglary. Deputies are asking anyone with information about the burglary to call the SLO County Sheriff’s Office.

This is a very sad situation for a family owned business that is dealing with medical issues that has already compounded their struggle in life. Hopefully their business will perk up in their time of need for help.
