Sheriff’s Report: Suspect stole money from Kimball Junction restaurant safe in 2 minutes

The Summit County Sheriff's report

Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a Kimball Junction restaurant on Saturday regarding a burglary that occurred in the past.

A suspect entered the business after correctly typing in a door code. They quickly made their way to the room with the cash safe and entered the code, according to a report from the Sheriff’s Office. The suspect removed more than $300 in cash and exited the restaurant within the two-minute window before the alarm was triggered.

Employees were interviewed about past workers who could have had access to the information. The employees provided a list of 13 people who know the codes to the door and the safe. Deputies obtained video footage of the incident, but the suspect’s face is concealed by a hoodie. The case was forwarded to investigations for follow up.
