Nice Twice hit twice

Second burglary prompts move

VALDOSTA — A second burglary in a month at a thrift shop has prompted the owner to speed up the business’ relocation to a new address.

“I just don’t understand. I thought this was a good neighborhood,” said Cathy Dozier, owner of Nice Twice Secondhand and Thrifts, also known as Granny’s Corner, at 1808 N. Ashley St.

Dozier received a call Thursday morning from employees opening the store telling her that the business had been robbed.

“They pried the lock hinge right off the door,” said Dozier.

The thieves reportedly made off with DVDs, video games, clothes, old radios, box cameras and more expensive items like a set of gold-plated silverware.

“The most expensive thing they took was a pearl necklace,” said Dozier.

“It was probably a couple of teenagers. They certainly took their time to pick out clothes from the racks to take what they wanted.

“But, really, who steals from a thrift store?”

The incident was reported to the Valdosta Police Department. The building does not have a camera security system to help identify the burglars, but police were able to lift fingerprints from the door, Dozier said.

A break-in was previously reported at Nice Twice on Oct. 1 when Dozier reported $1,700 worth of merchandise as stolen, including 500 CDs.

“Two break-ins in a month is too much. We’re going ahead and moving to our new location on Highway 84 across from Sonic. It has cameras, fences and locked gates,” said Dozier.
