More from the owner on October 14: … late last night, a gang broke into the pub. They attached a tow strap to the ATM and tried to drag it out, but failed. They then did a lot of damage as they smashed all our cameras, tore out all of our computer equipment attached to the security system, and took some cash and liquor. They smashed our door as well, but thanks to some fantastic neighbors we have covered it with wood for the time being until we can get some glass people in. The pub will be open again tomorrow at normal hours. Disregard the board. I am attaching some security video as well. Its a long shot but if that truck looks familiar to anybody please contact the police. These thieves also hit and damaged both the Powderhorn and Rockies in Bragg Creek last night.
