TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona reports more than $1,000 in merchandise was stolen from its thrift store this week.

HSSA officials said the suspects targeted a specific jewelry case after the reported break-in Thursday morning at the store in the 5300 block of E. Speedway Blvd, near Craycroft.

"We are trying to do great things here at the Thrift Store for people and pets, so when something like this happens, it's awful and can be discouraging," Public Relations Lead Samantha Esquivel stated in a news release. "However, the thrift store staff and volunteers are resilient and will continue to keep up the great work they do here."

The thrift store operates Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The proceeds benefit the care of the organization's homeless pets.

Those who want to donate to the store can visit hssaz.org for more information.
