According to a report, store owner Rachman Cantrell estimates around $5,000 worth of merchandise was stolen, including jewelry, chains, and other items. Compiling a complete inventory has proven challenging due to the diverse range of products in the store.

The report adds that Bothell Police received 9-1-1 calls about the incident starting at 1:44 a.m. on Friday. Officers spotted two suspects dressed in black and wearing blue face masks, one possibly armed with a knife. The culprits escaped in an Audi later found to be stolen from Auburn.

Cantrell mentioned this is the second burglary at his store, located in Bothell's historic downtown area, within a year. In the report, local resident John expressed frustration, saying, "It sucks to have someone who is just trying to have a small business in a small town like Bothell and really add to the community — just get robbed, a couple of times in the same year?"

The suspects remain at large, as confirmed by Bothell Police in the report.

"I should probably be retiring," Cantrell, 80, commented as per the report. "But it's kind of hard to retire when I have all this stuff."
