A unknown individual is seen on surveillance video carrying an outdoor heater from Fiselle Restaurant in Winters. Photo: Winters Police Department/Handout[/caption] The Winters Police Department is investigating the theft of several outdoor heaters from a local restaurant. In a Facebook post on Saturday, the police department said surveillance cameras had captured images of a person allegedly involved in the incident. The pictures also captured what is believed to be the getaway vehicle connected to the theft. The theft happened Friday evening at Ficelle Restaurant on Main Street, Winters Police Chief John Miller said in an email to the Express. Miller said two heaters valued at approximately $600 were stolen from the business. Miller said the suspect appeared to be male based on screen captures from surveillance cameras, but the police department does not have a good description otherwise because the individual was covering his face and wearing work gloves. The truck connected to the incident is believed to be either a GMC or Chevrolet extended cab model, Miller said. Social media postings reviewed by the Express claimed at least four heaters had been stolen, but Miller confirmed only two were taken over the weekend. The police chief said the restaurant had been victimized several months ago but did not report the prior incident to police, which likely accounted for the discrepancies in postings that appeared online after the recent burglary. “Although Winters is overall a very safe town, we are not immune from crime, especially property crimes, which are most often crimes of opportunity,” Miller said, adding that residents and businesses are encouraged to “secure items of value, including bicycles, and lock vehicles.” Anyone with tips about the theft is asked to contact the Winters Police Department at 530-794-6721]]>
