Break-In At Columbia Taco Bell

Break-In At Columbia Taco Bell

Burglars broke into the Columbia Taco Bell overnight. Early Tuesday morning employees notified the Columbia Police Department of the break-in. An empty safe was sitting outside next to a squad car during investigation. (It appears the burglars made ‘a run for the border' as the old Taco Bell commercial jingle went.) 

Illinois State Police specialists are assisting the CPD in the investigation. Video surveillance tape is currently being examined. As of 11 a.m., Taco Bell remains closed as the investigation continues.

Deputy Police Chief Jason Donjon is asking for the public’s assistance. If anyone saw or heard anything suspicious in the area, please contact the CPD.
