Police say a man broke into a local bar through its roof and stole two bottles of Crown Royal.
Authorities responded to the Wagon Wheel, 1005 S. Burnett Road, on Tuesday morning due to an alarm going off at the business. A police report says officers saw a vent on the roof was pulled off when they arrived.
“After checking through the east facing windows, officer’s noticed the ceiling was caved in near the area where the vent was removed,” the narrative says. “Two boards from the fence on the patio area were broken off as well, indicating someone made entry into the business and fled the area through the fence.”
Police were able to make contact with one of the bar’s owners and reviewed surveillance tapes of that night.
“The suspect was only able to take two bottles of Crown Royal and fled the area possibly heading westbound,” the report says.
The suspect also opened the register, according to the report, but it was unclear if any money was taken.
