Both the Town Baker and the Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah’s Witnesses experienced attempted break-ins on the same night, with the same basic modus operandi.

Paul Amick, co-owner of the Town Baker, reported that he received a call from his alarm service at 12:30 a.m. Sunday that his alarm had been activated. Amick reported that the vandal or burglar had destroyed the door leading into the kitchen, and ripped off and tossed security lights into the yard. “It looked as if he had been there for a while, based on the level of damage that was done,” said Amick.

Amick was told by customers that the same night the Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah’s Witnesses also had suffered an attempted break in, with a door being badly damaged. That could not be independently verified as of press time.

In neither attempt did the individual succeed in gaining entry into either structure, according to Amick.

Inquiries made to Hemet Station, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, were not answered prior to press time.
