The owners believe the crook or crooks used some type of crowbar to open the door to the dining room.

They then broke open the ATM and stole nearly $1,000 that was inside.

State police are investigating, but Kelley told Channel 11 they intend on staying open through the pandemic.

"People are so scared and so desperate for money because so many people are out of work, and so many people need resources, everything,” Kelley said. “Part of me … my heart goes out for people who think they need to rob a place.”
