Burglars Hit Grill

Deputy Sheriff Troy McNear said burglars used the usual method when they hit Grill 69 last Thursday night. They broke the glass in the front door to gain entry. We would say Tom and Janie Peirson aren't very surprised when burglars enter their cafe because it has happened so many times during the past several years.
