CALALLEN – David Hanscheck’s elderly father has owned Garden Equipment Sales, Inc. for 49 years, and is now facing hard times.

“He don’t have no money or nothing. He’s just been living off this business for fifty years. All his money is in that business,” Hanscheck said.

Early Thursday morning, Hanscheck’s sister came in to open the family business near Calallen when she heard she alarm going off.

“It’s just senseless, you know. The lack of respect people have these days. It’s just unbelievable,” Hanscheck said.
