MONTE VISTA — The Monte Vista Police Department is investigating an overnight burglary at the Monte Villa Inn that yielded an unknown amount of cash.
Interim Police Chief Jim Grayson said someone broke the cafe door of the hotel and took cash drawers. He said owner John Nelson is out of town and the exact amount of the loss won't be known until he returns.
A hotel employee said a rock was used to break the door and two cash drawers were taken.
A video camera captured the burglar in action, but Grayson said it is not of good quality. It, too, is awaiting Nelson's return.
