Boscobel, WI – June 18, 2014 – Last night while tornados were touching down in Platteville, two business were burglarized in Boscobel, Kim's Silver Dollar Bar and Violet Dream Bakery outlet store, both businesses are next to each other in the 900 block of Wisconsin Avenue.
Nothing appeared missing in Violet Dreams, perhaps because the robber or robbers were surprised when the owner of the Silver Dollar, Kim Kalish, happened to walk in around 2:45 a.m. while the burglary was in progress. He found a stocky, hooded man trying to gain entry to an ATM unit in the Bar. Mr. Kalish gave chase, but the burglar ran out the back door. Shelly Martin, bartender at the Silver Dollar, said the robbers had tipped over bar stools to use as a barricade in case anyone gave chase, and Mr. Kalish ran into them in the dark while pursuing the burglars.
A large, heavy safe had been ripped out of the wall and was missing. It contained a undisclosed amount of cash. Boscobel Police Chief Todd Stenner has asked that if anyone has any information regarding these burglaries to please call 608-375-4122. Chief Stenner also said that there were two other burglaries in Blue River the same night. mwnews.net
