    “I don’t know what happened,” said Fernando Rojo. “I saw that one of the glass doors was completely broken. There is glass all over the floor. I looked inside and I could tell that they were robbed. I called one of the owners, Cynthia. She didn’t believe me at first so I sent her some photos. This is really sad. I know them well and they’re really nice.”

    West Hollywood Sheriffs arrived on the scene at around 10am to assess the damage and get a report on what was stolen.

    According to a source, the alarm was triggered at 4:55 a.m.. Camera’s captured the store being robbed and then being being robbed again at 9:20 a.m.. Video footage captured another individual walking into the store and grabbing some sunglasses for himself.

    No details yet on how much inventory was taken.

    Established in 2011 Optique by Cynthia & Christine is owned by two sisters. They have over 35 years of experience in their field, offering a wide selection of eyewear to the community.

    Optique was previously located down the street at 8947 Santa Monica Boulevard, by the Robertson Boulevard intersection. According to their Yelp page, it operated at the location for over 24 years before the sisters took over. They then relocated to 2019 to 8730-B Santa Monica Blvd on the corner of Huntley in West Hollywood in 2019.

    My 12 Step Store was located at that location for 15 years before it moved next door in 2019.

    If caught, they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. (Do we still do that?!).

    The simple fact is that the slugs were long gone and there was no immediate threat of violence.

    How is it even possible that there could be that much destruction without anyone noticing (seeing nor hearing that much glass breakage) whilst it was taking place??? Hard to fathom.
