Thieves targeting Longview business


A Longview business is having to invest in new security after multiple break-ins.

Wyatt's Trailer and Welding on Highway 80 has been broken into a half dozen times over the past year, and three times in just that last three months.

Burglars hit at night and have taken everything from $2,000 paint spraying machines, to chainsaws, to tools, even jewelry from the office.

"Insurance, I can't really claim any more," says co-owner Cheryl Wyatt, "They're going to cancel us, and of course, if you claim and you get the money, then you go to a high rate company, you end up paying more at a high rate company. So, it's definitely affecting us."

The Wyatt's have even gone as far as to offer a $500 reward for information that leads to an arrest connected to their business thefts.
