PITTSFIELD, Ill. (WGEM) Police Chief Kenny Yelliot said the burglary happened at the Moose Lodge overnight Friday into Saturday. The amount of cash taken hasn’t been released.”They broke through the back door, and unlocked the door from the outside and made entry into the building,” Manager of the bar, Ray Miller said.Miller said without the pay out machine, slot machines can’t be used.”We’re losing money every day because machines aren’t up and running so a substantial amount of money is probably not being made,” Miller said.Miller said the bar’s surveillance footage didn’t get a glimpse of the thief, however police say they’re investigating in coordination with other agencies because of other similar instances.”The first reaction was anger, and then after that you feel like you’ve been violated, you want retribution immediately, I hope they catch whoever it is so we can see him face to face,” Miller said.Donnie Anstedt is a manager at a nearby antique shop and said he isn’t worried about a burglar because not only does he have an alarm sound and surveillance, but other means of protection as well.”I feel pretty secure, if they happen to break in if i was here, they would really be in trouble as I strategically have my firearms with me,” Anstedt said.The Pike County Sheriff’s Office is assisting with the investigation.The investigation is being coordinated with various agencies experiencing similar burglaries.Police say cash was taken from business but haven’t said how much.Anyone with information is asked to call the Pittsfield Police Department.Parthenon in Fort Madison to close next weekParthenon in Fort Madison to close next weekParthenon on 715 8th St.Parthenon on 715 8th St.A long time Fort Madison restaurant is closing next week.A long time Fort Madison restaurant is closing next week.Fort Madison cemeteries getting a spring cleaningFort Madison cemeteries getting a spring cleaning..
