Memorial Day weekend was not a good one for Storage Wars stars Rene and Casey Nezhoda. Their shop, Bargain Hunters Thrift Store, was broken into by at least one thief. What happened and was anything stolen?
Bargain Hunters Thrift Store Robbed
Storage Wars stars Rene and Casey Nezhoda are furious that they were robbed over the holiday weekend. According to TMZ, the couple shared a YouTube video calling the robber the “lowest scumbag out there,” and explaining the robbery. The burglar smashed the glass windows at 4 a.m. local time. They got in, destroyed display cases and took off with some rare and valuable coins. The value of the items taken is $2,000, while the value of the store destruction is also $2,000.
Thanks to a solid security system, complete with sensors, the burglar made off with some merchandise, but their attempts to take more were thwarted by the alarm. Right now, they are not really sure if it was one person working alone, or if it was a team. Either way, a police report was filed and Rene is angry. The German-born entrepreneur’s video is worth a view, just for the humorous narrative explaining how the crime occurred.
Fans around the world who watch Storage Wars know that the stars bid for a storage unit, and hope for the best. Fans watch them check out the true value of the items that they purchased. This makes the reality stars wealth and financial information somewhat public. This could easily make them vulnerable to theft, as Rene and Casey recently experienced.
Farrah Fawcett’s Storage Locker
This is not the first time that the two have been robbed. Storage Wars fans will remember that it was not that long ago that Rene and Casey purchased Farrah Fawcett’s storage locker. The reality stars paid a hefty $3,500 for the unit. The contents should have included memorabilia and collectables. Instead, they found themselves in the middle of a celebrity lawsuit. All valuables were missing. Family and friends pilfered the items. The locker was not valuable. This was not a traditional robbery, but it was equally painful.
