Evart Bar Cleans Up After Late Night Break In

Posted: Updated:

Someone smashed the front door and took nearly a thousand dollars from the bar's pool tables, cash registers and lotto machines.

The manager at Schmidty's in Evart left at 10:30 last night and noticed the damage when she came in at about 8 AM.

The believe the thieves broke into the office first and then stole keys to open the lotto machines and pool tables.

They then knew how to open the cash registers without using force, a sign to the owners that the thieves knew their way around.

To help with the search, the bar is offering a reward for an arrest.

9&10's Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Tony Zyber saw the damage themselves and have more details.
