Masked thieves steal thousands in cash from Butler County restaurant

The break-in at Big Buls Roadhouse happened at 3:15 a.m. Monday, and the masked suspects were in the building for two hours smashing anything that might contain money, including a jukebox, games, an ATM, cash registers and a safe.

“They got thousands,” owner Steve Bulach told the Journal-News.

Bulach said he and his wife, Rhonda, bought the business about two years ago and have turned it into a family-friendly location.

Many of their own family members, including some of their children, work there, he said.

“It feels like someone broke into our home,” Bulach said, adding he is thankful no one was in the business when the break-in happened.

Security cameras caught video of the culprits and Ross Twp. police posted photos of them to its Facebook page.

Bulach said detectives also are looking for video from surrounding businesses that many have captured the suspects’ vehicle.

Police do have some tips and leads in the crime, Bulach said.

Customers have been supportive since the break-in, stopping by to say how sorry they are, he said.

“Everyone has been reaching out to us. It has been great,” Bulach said.

Anyone with information about the break-in is urged to call Detective Mollie Johnson at 513-795-1535.
