EAST PEORIA (25 News Now) - East Peoria Police are investigating a burglary to a sports bar January 10.

5th Quarter Sports Bar co-owner Ray Koeppel says they entered the bar by cutting a hole through the freezer roof with a saw and video shows a man smashing a slot machine with a sledgehammer and taking an undisclosed amount of money.

That video, posted to the bar’s Facebook, shows a suspect “pretty well covered up.”

Koeppel urged people to “see something, say something.” He says this was done during daylight hours.
