Washington — The owner of Teri's Country Cupboard in Washington reported a burglary at the business Sunday morning, May 18.

Owner Teri Peaslee said sometime between 8:30 p.m., Saturday night and 10 a.m. Sunday morning, someone broke into her Route 17 business through the side door and stole money from the premises.

The door was damaged in the process.

She said she called the Knox County Sheriff's Office, which sent an officer out to the business to investigate.

She said this is the first break-in this season, but there have been others in the 14 years she has owned the business.

I stopped in to grab a sandwich here on my way home last night and saw the sheriffs car in the yard  and heard firsthand about the robbery.   

To help make up for the damage done I suggest we all patronize this business and help them earn back what was stolen from them.  They have a diverse menu and a pleasant picnic area.  Bring the family and have an ice cream!!
