 Suspect 1         Suspect 2         Suspect 3

The males walked around inside of the restaurant and located the store office.  Then two males served as lookouts , acting as if they were shopping and blocking walkways, while a third male broke into the store office.  The office was entered, however, nothing was taken.  The three males then casually left the restaurant.

During the investigation into this crime, deputies discovered that a similar incident had taken place one day earlier, Thursday, September 5, 2013, at 12:00pm, at the Wautoma Shell Station.  The same three male suspects were recorded for about one-half hour looking around the store and subsequently locating and then entering the business office.  Nothing was found to be taken.
 
In the Waushara County incident, the males left in a 2004-2012 gold colored Chrysler mini-van with a possible Minnesota license plate number of 525DMT (see attached image).
