VIDOR, Texas — A Vidor woman is fed up about what she claims is a lack of security at Woods Mini Storage.
Tina Landin told 12News thieves broke into her unit earlier this month.
Police told 12News the business has a history of break-ins.
In fact, we started asking about security there, last year, when we head from other concerned customers.
Landin said she's been using Woods Mini Storage for more than a year and has heard story after story about break-ins.
Based on what she pays, she feels like she deserves better security.
"It's disturbing, it's like my stuff in there," Landin said.
Landin said it's time for something different to be done at the Woods Mini Storage in Vidor.
Landin thought her things would be safe inside her storage unit, but found out recently that's not the case.
"It was last week they called up and said the lock was broken," Landin said.
An employee at the business told her about the break-in earlier this month.
When we checked into it, staff told us someone cut open the fence and broke into at least 20 units.
Thieves disabled the security cameras prior to the break-ins.
"If my stuff is gone, of course I'm going to be mad," Landin said.
Thankfully, Landin found out that nothing was taken from her unit
A worker at the business says they provided everyone with new locks.
"I just hope they beef up the security on it," Landin said.
Landin said with an old fence and not enough cameras, these units are a target for thieves.
According to Vidor Police Chief Rod Carrol, the storage unit has had a history of break-ins.
12news investigated the trouble last fall, when we heard from other customers concerned about safety there.
Landin said since Harvey, it's been difficult to find other storage units.
She has no plans to move her things.
"I think they need more cameras and security or something," Landin said.
When 12News tried to speak with the owner of the business, we were told he was out of town.
Chief Carrol said renters need to invest in special padlocks that are more secure.
