Calling BS on this one. PRY open a safe? Never saw a safe you could PRY open. That is why they are called 'safes'.

I can't believe these dealerships don't have any kind of alarm systems. Shame on them.

It was an optional extra that they couldn't get the manager to throw in with the deal.

When I worked at Cumberland Farms on Fisher blvd back in 1988, someone smashed the front door and stole the FLOOR SAFE. Crime isn't new in TR or anywhere else and it will always be present to some degree regardless of who's in office or how many law enforcement officials are out there.
