Thieves cut through Alioto's roof to get to booze

Nov. 9, 2011

Burglars looking for alcohol made their way into Alioto's Restaurant by cutting a hole in the roof Monday.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

An employee found ceiling tiles over the bar in the restaurant, 3041 N. Mayfair Road, had been pushed down Nov. 6.

Later she found a large cooler had been moved, a hole in the drywall next to the wine cellar and prymarks on the door to a room where liquor is stored.

More ceiling tiles were found on the ground in the coat room, as were two bags containing tools and a folding ladder.

The beer cooler was broken into, but nothing seemed to be taken. Only a few bottles of wine coolers were missing.

Police believe the burglars set off the security alarm and left their tools and alcohol behind in a rush to get away.
