Liberty cafe robbed twice, police seek public's help with investigation
Liberty — Police are asking for help from the public regarding two break-ins that occurred within about a month of each other at a Liberty cafe.
The first burglary was reported in early July at 5:14 a.m. after staff at Lori's Cafe discovered a rear door was smashed open and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken from the business, Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff's Office said.
A second burglary was reported Aug. 5 shortly before 6 a.m. when a cook at the cafe noticed the same rear door was again smashed open and a smaller amount of cash was stolen, Trafton said.
“This is a hard working family business out there and they don't deserve to have this keep happening to them,” Trafton said.
Police are continuing to investigate the break-ins and are asking that anyone with information regarding the incidents contact the sheriff's office at 338-2040.
