The Lolo Peak Brewery has only been open since July 4, and the business has already been victimized by burglars.

Missoula County Sheriff's Department Public Information Officer Paige Pavalone said the burglary took place early Monday morning, July 7, between 2 and 4 a.m.

"Two unidentified juvenile males entered the establishment and stole nearly five thousand dollars worth of equipment," Pavalone said. "Taken from the business was camera equipment, computers and other equipment essential for running the business. They left the establishment two hours after they entered it. The two were captured on surveillance video from an adjacent business was they were walking down Ridgeway Drive towards High 93 South."

Pavalone said the quality of the surveillance video is poor, but technicians are working to clarify the images so that  they can be distributed to various news media for publication. Until then, Pavalone is specifically looking for help from residents of Lolo.

"We don't have any idea who these suspects are, so we're reaching out to the Lolo community specifically, and if anyone has any idea who these juvenile males might be to contact the sheriff's office, or submit an anonymous report to Missoula Crimestoppers," she said.

Burglary is a felony that can carry a prison sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

The number for the sheriff's office is 258-4810, or Crimestoppers at 721-44-44.
