AUSTIN -- KVUE obtained exclusive footage from a break-in at Prototype Vintage Design on South Congress that happened Friday night. The store owner said it's happening to other local businesses as well.

"I've heard that there's been a rash over the course of the morning, talking to a few other friends, that there's been a rash of break-ins that our similar to ours [at] other local businesses around town," said Emily Larson Orth, co-owner of Prototype Vintage Design.

In the surveillance video, a thief throws a brick through the glass door, climbs through and runs to the cash register to try and steal what's inside, then exits the store.

The store owner said there was nothing but change in the register.
