Greekbrook Flowers in Jackson Burglarized Overnight

A burglar targeted a Jackson flowershop overnight on Sunday but damage to the building is hurting the business more than what was taken.

Greekbrook Flowers is on the 700 block of North State Street. It's a pretty high traffic area and the business manager said the thief went right through a front door.

"Monday's are just crazy. We're usually so busy that we can't even keep up and today, not a phone ringing in the house cause we have no phones," Gwen Colella, manager, said.

Greenbrook Flowers has been open since 1917. Its ownership is now in it's fifth generation, according to the business's website.

A delivery driver noticed the problem on Monday morning - all the wires had been pulled from the phonebox. The internet is out as well, Colella said.

Colella went on to say it looks like the burglar first broke the lights and tried to get into the basement door but failed.

The burglar did make it in through the front door after breaking a panel, Colella said.

That person made off with about $500 worth of merchandise: five gift bags and a glass-cut vase.

Surveillance video did not the catch the image of this burglar but management tells NEWS CHANNEL 12 THAT they are adjusting their security setup on Monday.
