Police investigating second break-in in a month at Liberty eatery

By Abigail Curtis, BDN Staff

LIBERTY, Maine — Police said that a popular eatery on Route 3 was broken into and robbed sometime Tuesday night — the second time in a month that it was burglarized — and they are looking for help from the public with the investigation.

Staff at Lori’s Cafe discovered the break-in a little before 6 a.m. Wednesday, according to Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office. The burglar or burglars had apparently smashed a rear door to get into the business, and stole some cash once inside.

The first break-in at the cafe happened on July 2, Trafton said.

“We believe the two are connected,” he said.

The theft happened sometime after the business closed at 9 p.m. Tuesday. Trafton said that anyone with information on the break-ins should contact police at 338-2040.
