After becoming victim to a few shoplifters, one small business made the decision to do something about it.
"I won't ask a question, just get it back to the people who rightfully own it," Rug and Relic owner Tove Bormes said, back in December 2012 after art was stolen from her shop.
Today, she is singing a much different tune.
"There is a huge relief knowing that if somebody does steal from us, we have a way to prove what they did," Bormes said.
After art was stolen from her small business, Bormes made the decision to buy a high-tech security system. She is glad she did. In August 2013, she caught a husband and wife duo shoplifting art.
"You hate to find yourself in the position where that is even necessary," Bormes said. "You do what you can to combat those kinds of things."
Without the security system, those thieves may have never been caught.
"We figured out who had stolen from us before, but were unable to prosecute them because we had no way to prove that it was in fact them," Bormes said.
Now, with the system, she doesn't have to worry about art getting into the wrong hands. Bormes says she sleeps better at night knowing that the camera is always on.
"It was a smart business decision for us to do. It wasn't the easiest decision to come to, but it was definitely the smart one in the long run," Bormes said.
Rug and Relic has been in business for nearly ten years in Sioux Falls.
