Monterrey Mexican Restaurant, 436 E. Martintown Road, was hit twice within a week by a burglar, police said.
On April 1, a manager told North Augusta Public Safety that a rear window was broken, and nine TVs and two video surveillance hard drives were missing.
Police tracked footprints throughout the business and believe the burglar entered through the rear window, stole the items and then climbed through the ceiling to gain access to a locked office where the safe is located, according to an incident report.
The safe’s lock was also damaged.
On March 24, more than $600 worth of electronics and $200 in cash were stolen from the restaurant.
Window broken at school
A North Augusta man contacted police March 31 after noticing juveniles throwing rocks near Hammond Hill Elementary.
The resident was walking his dog near the school around 8:30 p.m. when he heard what he thought to be a window being broken out and contacted North Augusta Public Safety, according to an incident report.
When an officer arrived, he found a library window had been broken. After a search, it was determined that no other windows were broken.
A surveillance video showed three or four juveniles who appeared to enter the school’s property from the Bunting Drive side of the school. The cost of replacing the damaged windowwas estimated at $150, according to the report.
Disturbance shakes patients, staff
North Augusta Public Safety was called out to North Augusta Urgent Care, 1201 West Ave., on April 4 regarding a disturbance.
When police arrived, they noticed several of the patients and staff appeared to be concerned and shaken, according to an incident report.
Dr. Jeffrey Broder, the owner of the physician’s office, alleged that Mark Bradley Wasden, 49, of the 100 block of Ashwood Drive, came into the office around 9:40 a.m. and approached the counter. Broder told police that Wasden raised his voice and used profanity before threatening to physically harm the doctor.
Wasden tried to enter the back of the building to assault him, Broder said, but couldn’t because the door was locked. Wasden damaged the office’s telephone intercom by pushing it from its resting place, Broder told police.
Wasden left the office on a motorcycle. Broder told police that Wasden was angry with him because of a personal issue but that he doesn’t know him very well, the report states.
Wasden had been placed on trespass notice from the office on March 21, according to the report.
