A well-known Farragut eatery was robbed the week of Thanksgiving.

Aubrey’s Café, located at 102 S. Campbell Station Road, was broken into in the early morning hours Nov. 24.

Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene after the complainant (one of the café managers) reported he saw that the safe had been cut open and money was taken, the sheriff’s report states.

Kim Krause, one of the café’s managers, said the safe had been sawed open.

Deposits from two days of business were taken, Krause said.

According to the sheriff’s report, the complainant stated that approximately $5,000 was taken.

At the scene of the incident the complainant stated he didn’t notice any signs of forced entry, the reports says.

Sheriff’s deputies later discovered a large hole had been cut into the top of the roof of the café.

The hole was large enough for a “small, thin person” to gain entry, Krause said.

The robbery probably occurred between 3 to 5 a.m., she added.

Krause said café workers left the restaurant at approximately midnight.

The café also received a food delivery, which concluded around 3 a.m., and a café worker arrived around 6 a.m., she added.

The suspects caused $2,000 damage to the café’s roof and $500 damage to a countertop, said Martha Dooley, KCSD public information officer.

The incident is still under investigation and there have been no arrests.
