Over $1,000 in merchandise was stolen from the Humane Society's thrift store overnight, a spokeswoman said.
"The break-in was obviously planned, with the thieves targeting a specific case with jewelry" at the store, 5311 E. Speedway, said Samantha Esquivel.
The store, which raises funds for the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, "was broken into in the early hours Thursday morning," Esquivel said.
"We are trying to do great things here at the thrift store for people and pets, so when something like this happens it's awful and can be discouraging," Esqiuvel said in a press release. "However, the thrift store staff and volunteers are resilient and will continue to keep up the great work they do here."
The shop is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, noon-5 p.m.
