Thieves broke the front windows of three adjacent businesses to gain access Thanksgiving night at 2101 Trinity Dr. in downtown Los Alamos.

“Cash and a large screen TV mounted on the wall inside D'Anna Photography were taken but the thieves left behind a computer and camera,” Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce Director Ryn Herrmann told the Los Alamos Daily Post. “Vista Control Systems didn't have anything stolen and we don't know yet about Windgate Healing Arts because the owner is out of town.”

Los Alamos Police arrived at the scene about 8:30 p.m., Thursday and Cmdr. Preston Ballew spoke to the Daily Post today about the status of the break in.

“The investigation is active, and we've got some leads we are following up on but that is all I can say at this time,” Cmdr. Ballew said.

Vista Control Systems, Windgate Healing Arts and D'Anna Photography are in a building across the parking lot from the Los Alamos Public Schools Administration Building. LAPS owns the building that houses those businesses and had Assistant Facilities Coordinator Scott Johnson board up the broken windows until new glass can be installed next week.

Herrmann explained that D'Anna Photography has been working on specials to offer customers on Small Business Saturday, which is tomorrow.

“We just really want to encourage the community to turn out tomorrow to support D'Anna Photography and the many other local small businesses participating in this annual event,” Herrmann said. “This is an opportunity to really show our support.”
