A lot of damage done, says Royal K9 Designs owner

MARYSTOWN, NL — A local pet groomer was forced to close for the day on Friday after she discovered her business, located on the town’s north side, had been broken into overnight Thursday.

Meghan Mullins, owner of Royal K9 Designs by Meghan, told the Southern Gazette she discovered the break-in when she opened at 8 a.m. on Friday.

“A lot of damage was done,” she said.

Mullins explained the person(s) responsible for the break in also kicked in a wall, allowing them to gain access to a residence belonging to her mother on the back of the building.

Mullins said several things were stolen from both the business and the residence, including cash and jewelry.

Even “(the) baby’s piggy bank was smashed,” said Mullins.

Mullins said that thankfully no one was home during the time of the break-in.
