"After several hours of prying and striking the safe, the suspect was able to break it open and steal money," they said, but did not say how much money was stolen.

The man broke into the store on January 18. The restaurant staff had failed to switch on its security system that night, according to the sheriff's office.

The unidentified robber remains at large.
