WAYNE - Some shoppers in Wayne are being praised for their honesty after they inadvertently broke into a Wayne store and left money for their purchases.

Management at Buddy’s Small Lots on Route 23 got a call from police that there had been a break-in at the store but upon arrival, nothing was missing.

Surveillance footage shows a group of bewildered shoppers entering the store and calling out for a clerk. After figuring out what they owed, they left the money for sunglasses and batteries even though there was no one around.

Buddy’s management says that the lock on the door had malfunctioned and with the lights still on, the store looks opened for business. They say the honest shoppers should come forward to receive a gift certificate.

The security issue has since been fixed at Buddy’s Small Lots.
