The Silver Creek Store was broken into in the early morning hours of Aug. 9.

An exterior security camera at the store caught two masked thieves forcing entry into the front entrance of the store.

“They stole our ATM machine and tobacco. But they didn’t just steal from a store … they went into our ‘home’ and stole straight from our family. A family trying to support a newborn recently out of NICU, a four year old, and a five year old. They stole trust,” a post on the store’s Facebook page reads.

” To those individuals that decided to break in and steal, it’s truly heartbreaking that it’s come to this point in your life that you have to do such acts. I hope it was worth it because you will be prosecuted! It’s a good thing we installed amazing security cameras,” the post goes on to say.
