LSO Jewelers & Repair owner finds hole in the wall, police investigate burglary attempt

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - Port St. Lucie police are investigating after a jewelry store owner found a hole in his wall that led to an unoccupied business next store with busted locks on their doors.

On Monday, police responded to the LSO Jewelry and Repair store located at 906 S.W. St. Lucie West Boulevard to investigate reports of a possible burglary.

They met with the shop's owner who told police that after working all day at the store he went to the back of the shop and noticed a "strange looking" mirror on the wall that separates his business and the vacant business next to his shop.

The store owner, Stanislaw Oprysk, told police he touched the mirror and it went straight through the wall into the unoccupied business.

Investigators found that besides the hole being placed in the wall, the locks to the nearby business had been pried open. Police say that with the exception of some holiday decorations being moved around, it does not appear anything was actually taken.

Police believe that someone either ran out of time or may have had plans to return after hours.

Police are asking if you have any information on this case to call the Port St. Lucie Police Department at (772) 871-5001 or Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273 TIPS.
