Bay Area

SAN JOSE (KRON) — Someone broke into a San Jose bakery early Thursday morning — and now the small business is trying to recover from the damage done.

Surveillance video released by the business Thursday shows the suspect breaking through the glass door of Flower Flour bakery and grabbing the cash register before leaving.

According to the business owner, the break-in occurred around 2 a.m. Thursday.

The business said there was cash inside the stolen register.

“We are a hard working small bakery! Why are you damaging our shop?” the bakery posted on Facebook later Thursday.

The store owner is upset and disappointed over what happened.

She told KRON4 she got an alert from her security company after returning home from a Christmas party.

Ever since she got the call, she’s been running around nonstop to recover from the damages.

“Makes me upset because we are a very hard working bakery,” said owner Ani Sarhadian. “It’s a small business and you know with the cost of living and high leases, we grab onto the business.”

She says the thief cost her more in damages than the amount of money they got away with.

While Sarhidian already replaced the broken glass door, she says more work needs to be done.

“She just took the cash register, but the damage was more so they basically broke the, one of the monitor system that we use and have to wait to replace it,” she said.

The business owner says this incident is the second break-in in the last four months.

If you recognize the woman in the video or have information on what happened, contact San Jose police.

The bakery is located at 896 Willow Street in San Jose.
