Pizza Factory burglary suspect.

— The Grangeville Police Department is investigating last week’s burglary of the Pizza Factory.

An undisclosed amount of cash was stolen from the Main Street restaurant sometime between closing on Monday, Nov. 24, and opening on Tuesday, Nov. 25. According to Police Chief Morgan Drew, entry into the building was made by forcing open the rear door in the alley, damaging the lock. The cash register was removed from the counter, damaged during the process, and the money taken. No other items were reported stolen during the incident.

Employees arrived around 4:45 a.m. Tuesday; however, they didn’t immediately discover the break-in, which was reported at 5:12 a.m.

From recovered video footage, the suspect is a white male in his mid 20s, wearing a dark colored hat, dark gloves and a hoodie sweater, jeans and a black belt. He was driving a silver Toyota RAV 4.

Lead investigators are GPD officers Phillip Smith and Wes Walters.

Information concerning the incident can be provided to police by calling 983-1351.
