Sierra Nevada Tire and Wheel may be moving, but after finding a window broken, some cash may not be following.
On Feb. 2 around 7 a.m., Placerville Police officers were dispatched to the business on Broadway for a report of a broken window, Capt. Mike Scott said. Officers learned that an employee had arrived at work to find the glass shattered.
A walk through the building revealed that petty cash had been taken by unknown suspects.
Geoff Bodle, the owner of the store, said the store is moving to the Stancil Building on Main Street as the price and location were hard to beat, noting that the side of town the business is currently located in is “withering away.”
“This end of town is dying,” Bodle said. He noted the new building is a nicer facility, and that the new location will be “more customer friendly. I think it’ll be good.”
The business will be moving at the beginning of April.
