Basalt police seek help in Saxy’s burglary

Surveillance video shows footage of a man who police believe stole money from Saxy's Cafe in Basalt early Sunday morning.

Basalt police are seeking information on a reported theft of cash from Saxy’s Cafe early Sunday morning.

On Wednesday, the department released surveillance images taken at 2:50 a.m. of an unknown white male entering the cafe’s Midland Avenue location in downtown Basalt. He took cash from the register, police said.

Basalt Sgt. Stewart Curry said it appears that the cafe’s door was unlocked and the perpetrator did not use forced entry. He could not say precisely how much cash was taken but that “it was not very much.”

Curry noted that the suspect, upon entering the cafe, “realizes there’s a camera because he looks right at it.”

Anyone with information about the suspect can call the Basalt Police Department at 970-927-4316.
