'Storage Wars' Bargain Hunters Thrift Store Burglarized Again
“Storage Wars” star Rene Nezhoda is having a bad case of déjà vu — his store was burglarized, again … and this time the crooks made off with thousands in merch, again.
So here’s the deal, Rene and his wife, Casey — owners of the Bargain Hunters Thrift Store featured on the show — say they were enjoying a day off back on February 17 when they were notified that a couple of thieves were ransacking the San Diego area store.
We’re told surveillance camera footage shows the burglars entered through a back door after smashing the glass. When the dust finally settled … we’re told they made off with tons of sports memorabilia cards and other collectibles worth between $7k-$8k.
On top of that … Rene, Casey and their crew say the store was a disaster — physical damages only ran ’em about $1,500, but it took a long time to clean up the mess.
Two things to note … Rene says the burglars missed out on some VERY expensive trading cards, and thinks one of the thieves left behind some possible evidence. DOH!!!
A spokesperson for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department tells TMZ … detectives are in the initial phase of the investigation, but are working a few leads they’ve developed since the heist. They have not identified the suspects yet
As we reported … Rene and Casey’s store was hit back in May 2019 with the culprits jacking around $2,000 worth of rare coins and causing $2,000 worth of damage.
