Springfield business burglarized

Owners think it could be the work of an ex-employee

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - A Springfield business hopes surveillance video will help catch burglars who stole electronics and equipment.
It happened Thursday, at Johnson Company in west Springfield.
"We feel it's somebody we know. It's very hurtful to know that they don't care about your property," says owner Amy Johnson.

Johnson says when her husband went to work on Thursday, he knew something was wrong.

"When he opened the gate, he realized the shop was open," she says.

He walked the property and saw things missing.

"Stole, several computers, welders, multiple items," Johnson says.

Those computers are the heart of this company.

"It's got a lot of our business data on it and a lot of personal information. It's very devastating."

But that's not all. One of the ways the company operates, is by the use of vehicles. But, the buglers got away with a set of keys. That's another loss for this company.

Johnson feels strongly this is the work of a disgruntled employee and hopes surveillance video will help police track him down.

"To him, it's just a few things he can pawn. But, to us it's got records, data and our livelihood," says Johnson.

The Johnsons say the damage could cost them $8,000 dollars.
