Thieves Hit Lufkin Business That Caters to Kids
Who would rob kids of the opportunity to jump, bounce, and have fun?
A Lufkin business is trying to figure out how to move on after being hit by burglars. The Print Shack on N. Raguet Street in Lufkin was robbed last week, and the thieves took about $50,000 worth of bounce houses and equipment that the store rents for parties and backyard gatherings.
The shop’s owner says eight bounce houses had been set out for cleaning the night of September 6th, and at some point the thieves cut through the fence, loaded them onto a trailer, and took off.
And the owner was not insured against the loss.
Seen anyone with about eight new bounces houses in their back yard? I’d be suspicious.
A benefit account has been set up to help the owner, and donations can be made at any Commercial Bank of East Texas. It turns out, the owner, Tanya Oliver, is also undergoing cancer treatment, so the funds will go toward helping her with medical bills as it helps to bet the business back on its feet.
