Letter: Thefts make bad times harder


My name is David Newsome from Dave’s Custom Meat. I’ve had a kind of rough three months, but sometimes it seems a little rougher when you’re trying to sell things off to make things meet with a dime on the dollar and when you have two stainless steel racks behind the shop — someone decided they needed them more than I do. I hope they’re really proud of themselves. 

Now two days later on Aug. 4, someone decided to take another shelf and one of my tables out front. Why don’t they just come in and take my life? 

And for the person who took the eight or 10 sheets of particle board, I’d like to have them back. You were seen loading them up, and I would like them back, no questions asked. Otherwise, I’ll prosecute.

Thank you,

Dave Newsome
