Both locations were ransacked. Nothing appears to have been stolen from Sloopy’s; however, a significant amount of cash was stolen from Braeden’s.

A picture of one of the suspects, taken from that footage has been included in this release. Note that while his clothing appears to be white in this particular photo, it was in fact dark in color as previously indicated.
