The Streamliner Diner, one of the island's most prominent restaurants, was burglarized and had its safe stolen early Monday morning.

A suspect broke in through a small window on the side of the restaurant facing Bjune Drive Monday before the business opened.

"Someone just broke the window, came inside and stole our safe," said restaurant owner Christina Briggs.

Briggs declined to say how much money was inside the safe when it was taken, adding that no other items were stolen from the business.

Briggs said the restaurant didn't have an alarm or any type of security system, which allowed the suspect to enter the diner, take the safe and exit without being noticed.

"We will have one after this," she said.

Monday's incident was not the first time the diner was burglarized. In 2004, the diner was one of more than 10 downtown businesses hit in a one-night crime spree, and Briggs said there has been a couple similar incidents in recent years.
