GREER, S.C. (WSPA) – A seafood restaurant has now been burglarized after a fire occurred in the building last month.

“Talk about kicking someone when they are down,” business neighbor and owner of Wesley’s Water World, Wesley Overton said. “That is just sad.”

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said that they responded to Tadpole Fish Camp in reference to a burglary on Friday.

Upon arrival, deputies said that the owner of the restaurant told them that nobody had been inside the building since May 9th around 1 p.m.

Deputies said that the owner returned to the restaurant that recently burned down on Friday around 1:30 p.m. The owner discovered that multiple items were missing.

The owner told deputies that she also went to the back of the building and noticed that a part of the wall was torn away behind an air conditioning unit. The owner said that is how she believes the suspect got into the restaurant and took the items.

The following items were taken from the restaurant:

  • Antique Alligator head
  • Antique military ranks
  • A canister containing arrowheads
  • 6 antique fishing reels

“I have been here for about seventeen years,” Overton said, “The tadpoles has been here for probably 50 years or more. It is a Greer landmark. It is funny, if someone calls and says where you located, I say you know where the Tadpole fish camp is.” 

There is no information regarding a suspect at this time.

“This fire has just devastated their family and our hearts and prayers go out to them.” Overton said.
