NEW HARTFORD- Some businesses at the New Hartford Shopping Center boarded up their windows following an ad posted to social media.
The ad appears to be associated with craigslist. We are still working to confirm whether it's legitimate or not.
Some businesses at the New Hartford Shopping Center say they boarded up their windows after seeing the ad.
The owner at Mohawk Valley MMA, Duff Holmes says, he needs to protect his liveliehood.
"For me it's a credible threat. $300.00 dollars worth of plywood is peace of mind to keep everything that I have in there safe." He adds,"I really dont have anything valuable inside besides things for myself. We have every shirt that we've worn in our fights and to me that's 15 years of blood, sweat, and tears so that's what I'm protecting and I'm just going to board it up and I'm going to play golf."
NEWSChannel 2 has reached out to New Hartford Police about this situation. We are waiting for a call back.
