About $15,000 cash was taken in a burglary of the Maggie Restaurant at 575 S. Park Ave. in Breckenridge last weekend.

Officers with the Breckenridge Police Department continue to investigate the incident after interviewing about 20 people in the past few days, said BPD spokeswoman Kim Green.

The report of the burglary came about 7 a.m. Sunday morning, when police were dispatched to the restaurant.

Green said investigators discovered a ski pole was used to force open the door to the area where the safe is located.

“It appears possible they knew the combination to the safe,” she said.

Local media weren’t notified of the crime until Wednesday afternoon because the detective “had a lot of interviews to conduct,” she said.

Sunday was closing day for Breckenridge Ski Resort, where the restaurant is located at the base of Peak 9. The restaurant is closed for the season.

Authorities are hoping the potential reward offered by Summit County Crime Stoppers will prompt folks to keep an eye out for people carrying an unusually “considerable amount of cash.”

Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call Breckenridge Police Department at (970) 453-2941 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-453-STOP.

Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,000 reward for anonymously provided information on this or any other criminal case.
