Major’s Burger Company was broken into for the second time in a month Tuesday night.

Liberty Hill police were called shortly before 7 a.m. on Wednesday when business owner Fred Hinze arrived at the restaurant and found the drive-thru window shattered. Inside, the door to the office appeared to have been kicked in.

Assets stolen include an office safe containing approximately $1,200 and an unknown amount of money in the tip jar, police report.

One or more suspects are believed to have entered the building through the drive-thru window some time between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.

Police ask anyone who might have witnessed suspicious activity, particularly involving a white Ford pickup truck, around the restaurant in those hours to call the Liberty Hill Police Department front desk at (512) 515 – 5409.

The first robbery happened two weeks ago on July 14. Police believe entry was also gained through the drive-thru window, which was then unlocked.

Both times the power was cut beforehand and the office safe was stolen.

Both cases are under active investigation.

Hinze said he and his wife, who own the restaurant together, will have to replace the drive-thru window along with other damages.

“We’re a small business, not a bank, and we don’t have a fortune,” he said.
