MAQUOKETA, Iowa (KWQC) — Police were called to Happy Joe’s Pizza, 603 Myatt Dr., just after 7 Thursday morning after a delivery driver alerted them to a possible break in.
When they arrived, they discovered the business had been broken into sometime overnight and the safe in the office looked like it was blown open. Because of this, the Iowa State Fire Marshalls office was called to investigate the scene. After an investigation by the Fire Marshall, it was determined that there was no explosion, but some type of torch or heat source was used to open it.
Police say an undetermined amount of cash was taken from the safe and there was some damage to the building. They say an investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information can call the Maquoketa Police Department at 563-652-2468
