Dozens Targeted in Valentine’s Day Burglaries

HERNANDO – While couples were passing out flowers, candy, and sentimental cards, on Valentine’s Day, burglars were taking advantage of the opportunity to steal from unsuspecting business owners.

The first incident took place early Sunday morning, at the Dollar General Store located at 6120 Commercial Way, where burglars attempted to break into the store by prying open the side of the building. It’s not known at this time if the suspect(s) was able to gain entry or remove items from the store. Local management did not wish to comment and referred us to their corporate headquarters.

The second incident occurred at Paul & Jerry’s Self Storage, located at 10161 County Line Road, where upwards of 26 storage units may have been broken into. A spokesperson with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office says “Multiple units at the business were burglarized and we are still actively working the investigation. Anyone with information on the case is urged to call us or Crime Stoppers.”

We spoke to an employee with Paul & Jerry’s but they declined to comment on the case.

Anyone with information on either case should contact the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office at 352-754-6830.

  • If Fred works for dollar general he needs to be fired. Not only is dollar general with holding info so is the hcso. With that said there is a reason they are holding info. Maybe bc there are reasons…. weather it be for safety of the employees or not wanting to ruin leads. If the hcso needed help they would release a report asking for it. Also the victims have the right to privacy. Oh and by the way….inside job yeah right was the inside person working for the storage place and dollar general at the same time?….. Thanks for what? Who knows if what Fred is saying is true. I will believe it when I hear it from the victims or the sheriff office.

  • Hmmmmm because gred is most likely a conspiracy therosist and EVERYTHING is a conspiracy to people like that… what consists of it being an inside job? Does the suspect have to work there or just have access to the inside and how many times would they have to have access to pull it off
