Briefs for July 20
Police investigating theft at Ore House restaurant
An undisclosed amount of money was stolen from the Ore House at Pine Grove restaurant sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning, police said Wednesday.
Steamboat Springs police Sgt. Dale Coyner said someone broke into the restaurant and through a locked door to the restaurant’s administrative office to gain access to the restaurant’s safe. The suspect or suspects attempted to drill into the safe but were unsuccessful, he said.
The suspects, however, stole an undisclosed amount of money from another part of the office. They also took several tools.
Before leaving the restaurant, the suspect or suspects cut the restaurant’s phone lines, Coyner said.
The alleged burglary was reported at about 6 a.m. Tuesday. No arrests have been made, and the incident is under investigation.
