B-Dubs Burglary Still Under Investigation

(La Porte, IN) - A burglar at Buffalo Wild Wings in LaPorte cut a hole in a safe to steal money without tripping the alarm system. A week later, LaPorte Police were still busy coming up with a suspect in the early morning October 18 break-in.


According to police, a glass door on the patio was shattered to gain entry. The burglar ventured past the kitchen area and then cut a hole in a wall to get inside an office where the safe was kept. A hole was then cut in the safe to remove at least $1,500 from inside of it.


According to police, the security system at the chain restaurant failed to activate because no outside or inside doors were opened to trip the alarms.


La Porte Police Chief Paul Brettin said investigators were contacting other law enforcement agencies to see if they had any similar cases to try and develop a suspect.


Brettin said some degree of planning was apparently involved in the crime.


“Desperate people do desperate things. Anything is possible if they put their mind to it,” Brettin said.
