Local News

HOLLADAY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Security alarms sounded Friday morning as thieves smashed open the entrance to a popular family-owned clock shop and stole dozens of watches.

Adam Recksiek, a clockmaker at Mt. Olympus Clock Shop, said he got a call after the security alarm at his store went off around 4 a.m. When he arrived at the store, the front door glass had been shattered and the steel gate had been ripped off. 

The thieves busted open a glass case holding dozens of Seiko and Pulsar watches and stole them, the owner said. 

Recksiek said he estimates the stolen merchandise and damage will cost the store nearly $4,000. 

Store staff said they were mostly irritated police, not their alarm company didn’t notify them. They said about 15 police officers arrived on scene early Friday morning. 

Recksiek said the store staff are now in the process of purchasing security cameras. 

He also added customers who left their own watches or clocks at the store to be repaired can rest assured none of their belongings were stolen.
