Burglaries reported in Arrow Rock
Two businesses in the historic village of Arrow Rock were apparently targets of burglars during the overnight hours Wednesday, said Sheriff Wally George.
A Saline County Sheriff's Department officer was dispatched early Thursday to investigate a report of a break-in at Ye Old Ice Cream Shoppe on Main Street.
The suspect or suspects apparently gained entry through a rear door and small bills and change totaling $187.50 was taken from a cash register in the restaurant.
While investigating the break-in, the officer was contacted by Clay Marsh, owner of the Old Tavern across Main Street from the ice cream shop.
Marsh reported that a suspect or suspects had also broken into the tavern overnight and taken a cash register valued at approximately $150. Nothing else was reported missing.
As in the other break-in, the suspect or suspects gained entry through a rear door.
An investigation is continuing in both cases.
