Business Owner Prevents Bar Break-In

Burglars target a local bar after-hours, but they don’t get far. The owner fired a shot and ran them off.

It happened early Thursday morning at Reilly’s Crescent Tavern. That’s north of Cadott in Chippewa County. Investigators say they believe no one was hit by the round because they found a bullet that matches the bar owner’s gun.

The sheriff’s office says it’s the second time tavern owners have confronted a burglar in the last month. Someone broke into a bar in Eagleton last week.
