Caledonia Police logoWhile it’s hard to tell if any of the robberies and burglaries that have happened over the last several days in Caledonia are related to others in Racine and Mount Pleasant, officials with the Caledonia Police Department aren’t ruling out the possibility.

The Roundabout Bar & Smokehouse, 5844 Douglas Ave., was the most recent burglary after someone pried open a banquet hall door, broke the locks on several cabinets and took an undisclosed amount of money and liquor sometime between 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 4 and 11 a.m. Monday, Jan. 5, according to the Caledonia Police Department and the restaurant’s owners.

“They broke the banquet hall door and the cabinets that had locks on them,” said Ron Zold, the owner of the Roundabout.

Lt. Gary Larsen, of the Caledonia Police Department, said the doorway on the east side of the building was broken into and at this point the case is still under investigation.

A snowplow and trailer were also stolen from Zone2Extreme, 4542 Douglas Ave., between the night time hours of Friday, Jan. 2 and early morning hours of Saturday, Jan. 3. An armed robbery was also reported at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Cousin’s Subs, 5131 Douglas Ave., and three other robberies occurred on Friday.

If you have any information regarding these crimes, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously by calling 1-888-636-0330, email, or text message RACS to 274637 (crimes).
