SOUTHPORT - Police are investigating after three men stole the safe from the Gray Goose café in Southport this morning.

Police say at around 3 a.m., the men forced their way into the building using crowbars and made off with the safe. They say almost the entire crime was recorded on surveillance video.

The owners of the café say there was several thousand dollars in the stolen safe.

Authorities say they are looking into whether this burglary is connected to a similar one at a Westport restaurant, Viva Zapata, in September.
