ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — After a weekend away, Chantel Rivera came back to find cash and jewelry were missing from her store, Charvera. With no cameras to capture the incident, the only clue was a footprint at the door.

"In cash, they took about $200 to $150 and jewelry wise they took about $400 worth of jewelry,” Rivera said.


No other damage was inflicted to the store besides a broken door frame. Rivera’s store has been open for less than a month.

"It's unfortunate, and I guess this what's kind of gonna happen right now because it's a pandemic and everyone is kind of rushing for money but I mean, I’m just glad that they didn't take any of my other inventory because that is my hard earned money,” she said. “I started this business from my savings."

Rivera has been running her store primarily online, but also offers curbside pickup. She also said jewelry bags with her brand name on them were also stolen.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to come forward.
