CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Two Charlottesville stores are cleaning up a mess of broken glass after a string of break-ins took place over Christmas weekend.

Benny Deluca’s and Potbelly Sandwich Shop on West Main Street say they were both broken into sometime around Saturday, Dec. 25. Glass was shattered at both spots, and each shop had its cash registers stolen.

Benny Deluca’s manager, Markel Johnson, says they lost $100 and the door was broken.

“We got cameras pointed into the register and into the back and stuff,” Johnson said. “But we don’t have personal, like a computer, to pull it up ourselves. So the owners and the GM is going to pull it up for us from their personal computers, they got their own information. So, just waiting to hear back from him to see what they say.”

Employees at Benny Deluca’s say the restaurant will be closed for the next few days as they try to clean up and recover.
