ST. LOUIS (AP) - The owner of a landmark, century-old St. Louis ice cream and candy emporium says burglars of his business made off with about $10 in coins. But the loss to the business is far more.

Andy Karandzieff says shattered glass from a double-paned window through which the burglar entered Crown Candy late Monday or early Tuesday may have made its way into a chocolate melter below.

That machine contained about 200 pounds of chocolate Karandzieff says he would toss for safety reasons, at a loss of more than $1,000.

Karandzieff lives above the store. He was awakened to the sound of breaking glass and the 102-year-old store’s alarms. By the time he made it downstairs, the burglar was gone.

Karandzieff says he’ll turn over the store’s surveillance footage to investigators.
