LAS VEGAS, Nevada (FOX5) – This is a popular restaurant in the Las Vegas Valley. Lindo Michoacán Summerlin wants to share his story and video of the burglary that took place early Monday morning so other businesses can be on the lookout and prepared.
As captured by surveillance video, after breaking a window to get in, the burglar steps on a cabin as he enters. The thief wore a wide-brimmed hat to conceal his face from the cameras.
“I’m pretty sure he was here before just because he knew exactly where to land…I guess he came as a boss before,” said general manager Ninfa Magana. Magana revealed he knew exactly where to go and brought a backpack full of the right tools with him to cut through the safe and an ATM, not only stealing the money but causing major damage to the restaurant. .
“Window, door, ATM needs to be replaced and another safe,” Magana said.
On the way out, the thief made one last quick stop.
“He stopped at the bar and grabbed a bottle of whiskey and a few beers before leaving,” Magana said.
Restaurant workers say it took something else too, their sense of security.
“You don’t feel safe anymore… We’re going to end up securing all the windows now even though we have an alarm system and we have sensors. The alarm has gone off, but we still have to make sure there is no entry point for anyone,” Magana said.
So far, no arrests have been made.
