“I’m actually angry at this one”; deli’s sign stolen amid rebuilding process

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — The Pass, a deli in Downtown Charleston, is dealing with another setback nearly two months after a car crashed into the restaurant.

“I’m actually angry at this one,” Anthony Marini, the owner of The Pass, said. “I can understand the crash; this was a little senseless with no benefit to anyone.”

After a car crashed into his deli in February, he posted a sign so people would know they’re still taking orders as they rebuild.

Soon, the community began writing notes of encouragement on the sign, but Marini says the sign was stolen.

“When did this happen? Between Sunday at 5 pm and yesterday at 9 am,” Marini said.

For this to happen after the restaurant has already been through so much, neighboring businesses say they’re heartbroken for him.

“Just the thought of someone not really caring about their actions and how it effects small business owners,” manager of Made in Heaven, Jasper Polkey said.

Currently, the Charleston Police Department is working on getting surveillance footage to find any suspects.

Marini says he’s thankful for the continued support the Charleston community has shown him in the meantime.

“It’s very disappointing that somebody decided to do this. At the end of the day, we still have a lot of support from a lot of people in the community,” said Marinin. “People have already reached out to paint a mural, so I think we may go that route.”

Marini is offering anyone with information that leads to an arrest $1,000.
