Video: Burglars Hit Optometry Office Amid COVID-19 Lockdown

They ‘brazenly smashed our doors and ran through our offices taking what they wanted.’




Thieves took about 100 frames from an optometry office in Kansas City, MO.

Two men broke into Vision Source Eyecare at 9596 N. McGee St. just before 4 a.m. Wednesday, KSHB-TV reports.

Vision Source posted about the crime on Facebook: “The thieves brazenly smashed our doors and ran through our offices taking what they wanted. We have some great video of them and audio. … These guys are easily identified by anyone that knows them.”

Dr. Ryan Powell, of Vision Source Eyecare, told KSHB that he’s aware of two other eyecare centers in the region that have been hit by burglars during the lockdown order.

“They’re aware that they can get in and out without being detected more easily now than they could at other times,” he told the news outlet.
