If you’re going to break into a jewelry story, make certain that the owner isn’t there, especially if he happens to be pretty handy with a shotgun:
A jewelry store owner shoots and kills a suspected thief breaking in Monday morning. Just before 1 a.m. police say Robert Trevino, 41, broke the glass door of Harper’s Fine Jewelry with a hammer.
Elgin Police Chief Chris Bratton says the owner, Juan Torres, happened to be in the back of the store.
“The owner was in the back room when the suspect broke out the front door using a hammer and was attempting to go through the jewelry cases,” said Bratton.
Torres fired a 12-gauge shotgun hitting Trevino in the neck. He died inside the store.
