- Bar and restaurant owners might want to double check the locks on their doors and windows.
Oneida County deputies learned of a string of burglaries targeting those businesses along Highway 47 early Wednesday morning.
And it's not the first time this has happened this summer.
Vicky Miller got a call that her bar, Miller's Club 47, was broken into at seven in the morning on Wednesday.
"It makes me mad that somebody can come in here and do this and not care about the livelihood of somebody's family," said Miller.
Miller said the burglars broke into Club 47 through a window and pried open gaming machines and the jukebox.
"They apparently used a crowbar or something," said Miller.
Miller's Club 47 wasn't the only victim. Backwaters Bar in and Grill in Newbold and Lizzie T's in Lake Tomahawk were also burglarized.
Oneida County Sheriff's Captain Terri Hook said they've been investigating four or five other bar break-ins over the summer.
"These are burglaries to bars or restaurants that have gaming machines or other kinds of money machines," said Hook.
Deputies think the latest ones are all connected.
"They haven't been quite as frequent as they have been Wednesday," said Hook.
Walter Rolain lives near Miller's Club 47 and worries someone might try to break into his house next to find some spare change.
"They must be professionals that's what I think…not kids," said Rolain. "I'll definitely have my door locked early tonight."
Miller isn't too worried about the loss of money; instead she's hoping her customers still come back.
"I want to ask them, 'Why me? Why do you even have to do it?'" said Miller.
If you have any information of suspicious activity from midnight to 6:00 am this morning call the Oneida County Sheriff's Office at (715)-361-5100.
