The Morongo Basin Sheriff’s Department is asking the public to help identify two suspects in connection with multiple burglaries in Morongo Valley.
Two men broke into the Sand to Snow Monument Bar and Grill at 5 am on Monday, November 5, according to Z107.7. The men took money from the jukebox and the manager’s office.
A week later, police believe the same men broke into the bar again at about 3:30 am and took a cash box.

On Wednesday, November 14, detectives say the same suspects broke into the All American Fuel and Food and stole more than $7000 in cigarettes and other merchandise.
“We’re all just heartbroken. Just demoralized. Everything. Just gone,” said Nicholas Nikyar, an employee at All American Fuel & Food told KESQ. “(The thieves) just went through everything – got all the cigarettes, got all the cartons that were below to stock them, got all these cigarillos, even got some condoms for himself… Most of the condoms are gone because he took them.”
Anyone with information should call the Sheriff’s Department at 760-366-4175.
