Thieves are repeat customers at barbecue restaurant

Michael Buettner

A Chester restaurant that’s popular with local barbecue aficionados also seems to have become popular with thieves.

• Unknown suspect(s) entered Sibley’s Bar-B-Q in the 12000 block of Winfree Street on Dec. 8. Cash and miscellaneous items were reported stolen.

This is the third time this year that Sibley’s has appeared in Crime Watch. On May 24, someone broke in through a locked rear door and stole cash from the establishment. And just a few weeks ago, on Nov. 23, parties unknown forced the back door open again and stole cash and miscellaneous items.

Anyone who has information about these incidents or any other crime is asked to call Crime Solvers at 748-0660. You can also submit a tip at crimesolvers.net or text WATSON plus your tip to 274637 (CRIMES).
