Hillbilly Hot Dogs owners Sharie and Sonny Knight continue to clean up the mess left after a burglar wrecked the home of the "homewrecker" in Huntington earlier this week.
"To have someone come along and take something that you worked hard for, it's just an injustice!" Sharie Knight said.
They believe a man caught on surveillance threw a block through a window, jumped through, and started ransacking the place.
"The door was down on its side and everything in the office was just piled. All of our papers on top of each other," Sonny Knight said.
"It's such an invasion!" his wife said.
The burglar took away much more than cash.
"It's not just the damage. It's what it does to us as owners. You know, we work hard for what we do. The old cliche.. we work hard for our money," Sonny Knight said.
The couple said this is the sixth break-in they've dealt with.
"You try to understand, why would they break into a hot dog stand? What could possibly be in a hot dog stand that you want?" Sharie Knight said.
They are trying to rebuild optimism.
"Well, they won't bring us down, will we?" Sonny said, as he leaned over to kiss his wife.
The couple said they've been humbled by customer response, and are hoping these pictures can help track down the person responsible.
