Early Monday morning, a suspect broke into Chuck's Bar and burglarized a cash arcade game, causing a total loss of $12,000.

According to Salina Police Department Capt. James Feldman, around 6:40 a.m., an unknown suspect broke into the business through a window on the southwest corner of the building.

"They gained entry and then damaged the Dragon's Ascent game," Feldman said. "[They] destroyed it and took the cash from it — it looks like the total loss with the cost of the machine is going to be around $12,000 — the machine was totaled."

Dragon's Ascent, A Game of Skill and Strategy, is an arcade-like game that provides actual cash prizes for its players.

Feldman said the suspect entered and exited through the window they broke and that officers would investigate the video footage captured from the business once it reached SPD.

"It doesn't sound like, from what they could see on the video, that there's going to be really good descriptors of it," Feldman said. "But we're still waiting for them to be able to get it to us."

Salina Post will update the story as more information becomes available.
