The Gretta Luxe shop at 94 Central St., in Wellesley Square was burglarized after midnight on Thursday, with whoever did it smashing through the front door with a boulder (according to our tipster) and absconding with pricey purses and possibly other merchandise.
Here’s what Wellesley Police have reported:
The Wellesley Police Emergency Communications Center received an alarm call for the business at 1:12 a.m. Officers were dispatched to the business and found that the front door window had been smashed. Officers checked the business and the area and did not locate any potential suspects. They did observe a blouse on a hanger on the sidewalk which was presumed to belong to the business and also located a silver hang bag further up Central Street on the lawn which was also presumed to be merchandise from the business.
A store employee responded and indicated that several items were taken from the store, to include purses with values ranging from $1,800 to $2,000. The employee will provide a detailed list of items taken later. The Wellesley Police Emergency Communications Center assisted the store employee with making arrangements to have a company secure the front door. Detectives were notified of the break. The incident remains under investigation.
Two commercial break-ins were reported in Wellesley during the first 4 months of this year.
