On December 26th, 2016, at 7:53 a.m., Sonora Police Officers were dispatched to Emberz restaurant on a reported break-in. Officers determined through surveillance video that the incident occurred on Christmas morning at approximately 4:50 a.m.

The suspect in the case forced his way into the rear of the building through a locked door and then smashed a window to the inner restaurant door to gain access to the business itself. The suspect stole cash from the cash drawer and attempted to pry open the safe. Being unsuccessful with that, he then tried to remove the safe from the business but was unsuccessful with that as well.

This is an open and ongoing investigation.
