MINGO —áThe Jasper County Sheriff’s Office is still looking for leads in the Nov. 27 break-in at the Greencastle Tavern in Mingo.

A spokesperson from the Sheriff’s Office confirmed Monday there is still no suspect in the case, but it remains under open investigation.

Surveillance footage posted on social media Friday by Greencastle owner Ryan Maher shows an individual with long hair wearing a stocking hat entering the building, removing items behind the bar and driving away between 6:28 and 6:41 a.m. A window broken out at the front of the bar is the likely access point.

Maher was not available for comment by presstime Tuesday, but he detailed the incident on his personal Facebook page. According to Maher, Greencastle’s alarm system did go off during the break-in.

The car the burglar was driving is described as a late model, dark colored four-door sedan. The gender of the subject is not known, but after leaving Greencastle they drove to Mingo’s Heartland Co-op and down the Chichaqua Bike Trail through the Mingo Community Center playground area in front of Milligan Automotive where they left tire tracks and tore up ground, according to Maher.

Anyone with information related to the incident is urged to contact the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office at 515-792-5912.
