WHEATON-Keeping a sidewalk free of snow didn't pay off for the Wheaton Liq early Sunday morning. When Police Chief Michael Johannsen responded to a report of a burglarly at the establishment, one of the first things he did was to look for any tracks leading to the smashed front entrance. Unfortunately, the ground was as clean as a whistle. It was one of the nights lately where it didn't snow. Police reported that culprits broke the glass of the front door of The Liq, and stole a safe. No product was taken and loose change was left on the site. An ATM,machine was untouched. Johannsen said the burglary was what police call a' smash and grab." He guessed the perpetrators needed only a few minutes to complete the heist. Police said the burglary occurred between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday morning. The time frame is based on when Liq staff left the establishment, and police patrols in the downtown area. Police received a call about the damaged front at about 6:30 a.m. The amount of cash taken was not known at press time. Johannsen said the safe contained the proceeds from Friday and Saturday night, as well as funds from pull-tab sales. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Wheaton Police Department's non-emergency number, at 563-4214.
