Firework Used As Distraction In Theft

Sheboygan County Sheriff’s officials say a man used a firework to distract a bartender and rob a tavern in Elkhart Lake. It happened Tuesday morning at JoVans Tavern. The man went in the bar and claimed there was a fire outside. Outside the bartender found a firework underneath a vehicle. When the bartender went inside to get water to put it out the man was gone and so was some cash from the bar. The tavern had video surveillance and investigators know what the thief looks like.
