Small businesses suffer in summer crime wave

By Oregon Small Business Association Foundation,

Portland’s crime wave continues, while City Hall helplessly stands by.

  • Early Sunday morning, Red Castle Games suffered its third break-in in two months, with this one racking up $15,000 to $25,000 (or more) in stolen goods and $10,000 in window repairs. The owners called 911, but it took police four hours to arrive.
  • A few feet away, at Portland Mercado, someone broke into Kaah Market’s storage area.
  • Early Friday somebody threw a piece of granite through the window of the tea house at Lan Su Chinese Garden.
