ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The owner of The Grill restaurant on San Mateo is fed up with thieves breaking into his business.
Phil Chavez said his restaurant has been burglarized twice in just a few months.
In the most recent break-in, the thieves ransacked Chavez’ office and took laptops, iPads, tools, steaks and safes, which added up to more than $5000.
“Every drawer was pulled open. Everything was thrown out,” Chavez said. “I still don't know how much they took from me because every day I find something else missing.”
Chavez said the burglaries are taking a toll on his business.
“It affects everything. It affects my food cost. All the money I lost. My insurance is actually going to skyrocket now,” Chavez said. “I feel violated. It’s just like breaking into your house.”
