Portage County investigators are looking into a rash of tavern burglaries that have occurred since January. Sheriff Mike Lukas says the latest break-in was to a bar in the Town of Amherst early last week, where the suspects got away with over 12-hundred dollars from the cash register and video gaming machines. Other burglaries have been reported in Almond and the Town of Carson. The sheriff reminds tavern owners to remove their cash from the bar every night, and to upgrade security. If you have any information on these break-ins, you’re asked to call Portage County Crimestoppers at 1-888-346-6600.
