DCSO investigates Wild Horse break-in

Staff reports

A popular sports bar was broken into Monday night or Tuesday morning, but owner Wayne Currie said he hopes to have the damage cleaned up and re-open today.

The Wild Horse Saloon and Pizza Co., 1679 Highway 395, Minden, sustained major damage during the break-in, Currie said. Currie said he owns the restaurant and bar with his wife, Sharon. The break-in was discovered at 9 a.m. Tuesday. The restaurant closes at 11 p.m.

The burglar broke a security system, security lights, removed a safe and damaged six slot machines, while destroying two.

“I believe it was a professional job,” Currie said. “They had 30 seconds to cut my security system and they looted every slot machine and stole my safe. It was not some kids on a prank.”

Currie would not say how much money was taken from the restaurant.

The burglar also broke into the barber shop next door by going through a shared bathroom. However, Lt. Ross Chichester of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said it is not clear if anything was taken.

DCSO is investigating the break-in.
