Jack the Horse Tavern owner Tim Oltmans got a rude awakening this morning when he showed up to work. “We had a break-in,” he said. “We think they used a brick to smash the glass [on the door].” More info after the jump.
The perps also turned off the light above the door to hide their activity; then once they got in used Oltmans’ toolbox to break the locks and get into the office. That’s where they hit paydirt. “They got a lot of cash,” he said. “The police are coming by soon to take fingerprints and collect evidence.”
But although the restaurant has taken a hit, Oltmans said will be open this evening. “I just have to find someone to fix the glass. And I guess I’ll have to go to the bank and get some cash.” (Update: Per commenter @Jackson, the restaurant will re-open Friday.)
