Portage Co. Crime Stoppers: Pop-a-Top burglary

BANCROFT (WAOW) - Portage County Crime Stoppers seeks help in solving a break-in at the Pop-a-Top pub on County Highway W in Bancroft.

The tavern's security alarm went off shortly after midnight last Friday.

"They pried open the door and once they got in they took the money bags. They left behind about $600 in damage to the door and took $1,200 in cash," Portage County Sheriff Mike Lukas said.

The thieves spent only minutes in the building because by the time the owner of the business and sheriff's deputies arrived on scene, the tavern was empty, Lukas said.

There are homes in the area, and investigators hope someone may have noticed some unusual activity that night.

If you have any information, you are asked to call Portage County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-346-6600.

You can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
