A popular Muncie attraction has been forced to temporarily close its doors after a break-in this week.
Epic Escape Game in downtown Muncie had what manager Jackson Onieal describes as thousands of dollars worth of product, ranging from televisions and laptops to security cameras and cash stolen from its Jefferson Street location.
“We don’t have an exact number but I would estimate in the thousands of dollars,” Onieal said.
After failing to enter the building through a locked door, the suspected thieves then broke a window at the back of the building where they were successfully able to enter the building.
Onieal and his aunt, Epic Escape owner Kathie Onieal, are grateful to the Muncie Police Department for their assistance, saying that an investigative team is scheduled to thoroughly look through the rubble for clues as to who is responsible for the crime.
“I hope we find them,” said the younger Onieal.
An official date has not been set as to when the Epic Escape Game will reopen, but a tentative time has been set for October 31.
