Owner Abby Ehmann told EVG contributor Stacie Joy that the break-in occurred just after 4 a.m. The bar has a rolldown gate. However, the burglar got into the residential part of the building and into the back garden, where he picked the lock to the back door.
Surveillance video shows that the man spent nearly 30 minutes inside the bar here between 10th Street and 11th Street. (Don't worry — this clip isn't 30 minutes long!)
He took all the cash left in the drawer ... as well as a $5 bill that someone had signed for Abby to staple to the wall.
Police sources also said the same suspect robbed an unnamed business early that morning on St. Mark's Place.
