ATLANTA, June 21 (UPI) -- The owner of an Atlanta restaurant hit by burglars early Friday said the crime was the third of its kind in the past year.

Bobbie Robinson said Harold's Chicken & Ice Bar has been broken into three times since she and her business partner opened it in June 2012, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Friday.

"Someone threw something in our front glass window and stole two 52-inch televisions that were on the wall," Robinson said of Friday's break-in.

"They broke in two days in a row a few months ago," she said. "They took one TV one day, and the next day, they came in and took two televisions."

Robinson said the previous burglaries led her to install burglar bars over the side door and she now fears she will have to do the same with the front windows.

"They're trying to uglify our place," Robinson said. "We were trying to keep it from [burglar] bars being all across, but we have to do what we have to do to protect our business."
