The business asks that you call Raleigh Police at (919) 996-3335 if you have any information.

"We're happy this happened during off hours, for one. This is a kid friendly environment so we want to keep it like that. We're real happy we were able to get the footage that we have. Thankful we took the time, energy, and money in getting a good security system and camera system so we can keep this from happening again," said Flemming.

Fleming the center has 60 surveillance cameras inside and he and his wife got an alert at the same time the police did. They only missed the crooks by 5-10 minutes.

The thieves made off with two cash drawers that were empty, so they got nothing. They did cause about $500 worth of damage.

Fleming and his wife spent hours cleaning up the glass and are open for business as usual.
