String of break-ins across one Northwoods community Submitted: 03/18/2014
Story By Dan McKinney


RHINELANDER - One Northwoods business owner feels violated after her restaurant was broken into over the weekend. Sue Wege has owned the Sportsman's Cafe in Rhinelander for more than a year now. She's never had a problem with anyone breaking in until now.

"It looks like they took a crowbar to the back door and kind of shredded that apart, just blew the lock to about a million pieces all over," says Sportsman's Café Owner Susan Wege. "[They] Took the money from the till, took the money from the change box."

"They did leave the money from the leukemia fund here, I don't know why but they did, it was kind of odd they didn't take all the money that was here," says Wege.

The robbers took just 150 dollars in cash. Wege says she feels violated.

"They were in here don't know what all they took or what their reasons for doing it," says Wege. "If it was a vendetta or you know a past employee or something like that I mean I really don't know."

"Can't go on being afraid you know we're going to stand up to it you know and if they come back we'll be ready for them," says Wege.

Sportsman's wasn't the only place broken into over the weekend. Arby's and Burger King reported break-ins to the Rhinelander Police.If you know anything about these break-ins call Rhinelander Police at 715-365-5300.
