Thieves make off with about $10,000 in merchandise from Asheville store
An Asheville business owner hopes you can help track down the people who stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise.
Hazel Twenty, on Patton Avenue downtown, was broken into Tuesday morning. Owner Lexi Diyeso said $10,000 worth of jewelry, leather goods and accessories were taken.
Diyeso, who said the crime leaves her feeling violated, thinks the suspects might try to sell the stolen items around town or online.
"Primarily, I'd like people to be on the lookout, community watch type thing, and alert us or the authorities if they see some of the stuff that came from the store," Diyeso said.
Anyone with information about the break-in are asked to contact the Asheville Police Department at 828-252-1110.
