DETROIT (WWJ) – Bottles of booze appear to be only thing missing from an iconic Corktown bar that was broken into early this morning.
The break-in happened around 2:30 a.m. Friday at Nemo’s Bar and Grill on Michigan Avenue, just east of the Old Tigers Stadium site at Trumbull Avenue.
According to police, a suspect wearing a dark-colored hoodie busted through one of the bar’s front glass windows, possibly using a tire iron. Once inside the building, police say the crook damaged the security monitor, took the cash register drawer and several bottles of liquor before leaving through a back door into an alley.
The register drawer was found near the back door and multiple liquor bottles were found in the alley. Detectives will be dusting the bottles for fingerprints in hopes of finding the suspect, described as a white male between 25- and 30-years-old.
Reporting live from the scene, WWJ’s Mike Campbell said investigators reviewed footage from the bar’s surveillance system and seemed to have recognized the face of the suspect, who remains at large.
Anyone who might have information on the incident is asked to contact police at 313-267-4600.
