Two Arrested for Burglary of Hillsboro Restaurant

Two St. Louis men were arrested Sunday evening for burglary of a Hillsboro Restaurant.

Christopher Rea, 18, and Nathaniel Zion, 18, were both arrested on burglary charges and taken to the Montgomery County Jail. According to Hillsboro Police Chief Randy Leetham, authorities received a call at 9:40 p.m. Sunday that a burglary had occurred at Nic's Smokehouse on Broad Street in Hillsboro. Officers responded to the restaurant and found one of the business's doors had been opened after hours.

The owner of the business was contacted and it was determined that some items were missing from the establishment, including bottles of alcohol and cash. Officers identified the suspects and made contact quickly. Both suspects were in possession of some of the stolen items, and told the police that the cash they had was taken from the restaurant.

The State Police Crime Scene Unit was requested on Monday to process the scene.
