LINDA (CBS13) — Pornographic toys, magazines and videos were stolen from a Linda sex shop, but the store’s owner is surprised by what wasn’t taken.

Kevin Couch owns Fantasy Factory across the street from a strip club, and Monday night someone broke into his adult store. But the culprits never touched the cash register.

“They just took the toys and left,” he said. “They didn’t take the money or anything so I was lost. The sheriff’s department was lost. When he saw all the stuff in here and he goes ‘that’s all they took?’ and I was like ‘yeah.'”

So Kevin thinks it was kids just trying to make a little mischief in forbidden territory.

“They see the adult store here, they can’t come in here they can’t purchase this stuff so they are bored and they break in and come in and take it at night when no one is here,” he said.

So far, there are no suspects, just a suspected age range: boys probably about 13 to 17 years old.

“If I was to do it I’d probably go for cash, not adult toys,” Linda resident Rodney Foster said. “I don’t really understand why somebody would take that, that’s kind of gross and weird.”

The thieves busted in by using a chunk of asphalt to crash through the door. It will cost Kevin about $800 to fix the door and he’s out about $150 worth of merchandise.

It’s the second time his store has been broken into in a year.

    I thiink the police are correct that it was just punk kids who did the burglary. It sounds like an amateur job. My purse was stolen by a teenager who mugged me. I realized he wasn’t a professional thief because I found my purse 1 block from my house on the curb – the kid stole some postage stamps, about $10 in cash and stole my bus pass….he left the credit cards, checkbook – had to be an amateur.

    Gee whiz – $800 to fix the broken glass door and only $150 in stolen merchandise….it might be cheaper just to leave the sex toys and porn outside in front of the store to keep thieves from breaking in? Somebody broke my car window in order to steal a bag of groceries on my back seat. It cost $500 to get my car window fixed – over a $40 bag of stolen groceries!

      Umm. No? He took all the things you wouldn’t be able to prove were yours in the first place. Writing checks require ID, and in some places, so does credit card usage. On top of that, it would only take one transaction at a business with security cameras with EITHER of those forms of payment to catch the so-called ‘amateurs’.

      1. USArtguy says:

        umm. Wrong. Ever bought anything over the Internet? No ID required for credit card purchases, just the name and numbers on the card. Ever heard of automatic withdrawal from checking (e-pay)? Lots of businesses allow you to make a payment from a checking account over the Internet or by phone. No ID required. Even if an ID is required, fake IDs are made by shady characters all the time. Having a security camera is no guarantee of anything. Every week on the news there’s security video of someone and their image is not recognizable. And there is no security camera on you, let’s say it together, over the Internet or phone.

    “The thiefs busted in by using a chunk of asphalt to crash through the door.” Really? This is the kind of writer you employ? There is no excuse for this.

    1. Dan says:

      Maybe you should learn how to read — ‘thieves’ was properly used.

  9. Mac says:

    MAybe these thieves are onto something and sex toys are about to become the new reserve currency? Once the dollar becomes worhless, we will all be exchanging rubber dongs for food and shelter…….
