Surveillance camera gets clear image of suspect in Madison bar robbery


MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) — The Madison Police Department released surveillance footage Thursday of a burglary earlier this month at a bar on the city’s east side.

Police say the image was captured shortly before 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 6, at the Atwood Bar in the 2100 block of Atwood Ave. The MPD report states that the suspect attempted to open the cash register and, after failing to do so, decided to take it all in instead.

CCTV showed he was in and out, exiting the back door, in about three minutes. The burglary was discovered later that morning by staff when they saw the missing ledger and alerted the police.

The suspect is described as a white male of medium build with a mustache and beard. He wore a white Wisconsin “Motion W” hat, white shirt, khaki cargo shorts and white, high-top tennis shoes. He also had a tattoo on his left forearm.
