Screen Geeks' owner: 'It just makes your heart sink into your chest'

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Detectives with the Lufkin Police Department are investigating a burglary that occurred at Screen Geeks at approximately 4 a.m. Thursday. The business is located at 2950 South Timberland Drive.

According to Matt Davis, the owner of Screen Geeks, the surveillance camera footage shows a black male wearing a hoodie throwing a rock through the business' front window. Once the suspect was inside Screen Geeks, he smashed the front display case and stole brand new products.

"[There was] shattered glass everywhere," Davis said. "I actually had to climb through the window of the shop just to get in this morning."

The burglar did an estimated $800 in damage to the store and stole about $3,000 worth of merchandise.

"It just makes your heart sink into your chest," Davis said. "You come to a shop that you come to everyday and it's like your home and it's depressing."

Davis said he is lucky that the thief only stole what was in the front case.

"No devices that belong to customers were taken," Davis said. "It was all store property."

Davis said Screen Geeks is offering a $1,000 reward for information that could lead to the arrest of the burglary suspect. Screen Geeks has been in business about a year and a half.

Detective J.B. Smith said anyone with any information about this burglary should call Lufkin Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS. People can also leave tips at the Crime Stoppers Website.
