Goose’s Tavern in Panama was burglarized in the early morning hours Tuesday. Investigator Rick Furlong with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department told us someone allegedly forced entry, broke into two video gaming machines and removed a kiosk machine used for gambling payouts.
The kiosk machine was later found just inside Bond County with all cash removed. This burglary comes just weeks after a similar burglary in St. Rose where the kiosk machine was found in tact outside of Scooter’s Pub. Furlong said they are investigating any connections between the two incidents. If you have any information about the burglary, call the Montgomery County Sherriff’s Department at 217-532-9511.
