CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A newly-opened business was burglarized twice over the weekend, but business owner says this will not slow her down.

Margie Castillo said at approximately 3 a.m. on Friday, someone broke into her business, Phat Keto Company, on Staples Street.

She said they pried open a window to her kitchen and stole several electronics.

Then, at 4 a.m. Sunday, someone broke into Phat Keto again.

Castillo said she chose this location in hopes of helping the area revitalize, but now, she feels scared.

“I just feel violated. (I) just have to rise above it and keep going,” she said.

Castillo said she plans to put security bars on the windows again, and security cameras.
