Richfield Restaurant's Fight Against Flower Theft

June 28, 2024

A Security Camera Success Story

For weeks, the El Sazon Cocina & Tragos staff had noticed a peculiar pattern: their carefully selected flowers were disappearing overnight. Initially dismissed as an isolated incident, the problem persisted, leaving the staff puzzled and frustrated. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, the restaurant's owners decided to review the security camera footage.

What they discovered was both surprising and unsettling. The footage revealed a well-dressed individual, seemingly unbothered by the cameras, methodically removing flowers from the planters under the cover of darkness. The brazenness of the act left the staff feeling violated and concerned for the safety of their property.

After multiple incidents, the restaurant owners, Karen and Cristian de Leon, turned to social media, sharing the footage and appealing to the community for help. The response was overwhelming, with an outpouring of support and suggestions from local residents and businesses. Some recommended installing motion-activated lights or setting up a neighborhood watch, while others offered more creative solutions, such as planting thorny cacti or placing fake flowers as decoys.

Amidst the flurry of suggestions, a practical solution emerged. A local security company, recognizing the importance of protecting community spaces, reached out to El Sazón, offering to help resolve the issue. They swiftly installed a state-of-the-art surveillance system at the restaurant, free of charge.

The impact of the new security system was immediate and profound. The flower thefts ceased abruptly, and the restaurant's patio once again became a safe haven for diners. The presence of the cameras served as a powerful deterrent, effectively discouraging any potential wrongdoers.

News of El Sazón's success story spread quickly throughout the community, sparking a renewed interest in security solutions. Local businesses and residents, inspired by the restaurant's proactive approach, began exploring options to safeguard their own properties.

This incident highlights the growing need for effective security measures in the Minneapolis metro area. With crime rates on the rise, businesses and residents are increasingly turning to technology to protect their assets and create safer environments.
