Crime On The Causeway

Crime On The Causeway

Posted: Updated:
Spanish Fort, Alabama -

The Causeway is known for its spectacular views, tourist attractions and popular seafood restaurants, but for some, crime has tarnished the reputation of this scenic and historic highway.

Police are investigating a series of car break-ins at Lap's Grocery and Grill. Investigators say at least four employee cars were burglarized in the employee parking lot.

The bad guys got away with hundreds in cash and valuables.

Restaurant management would not talk to us on camera about the break-ins, but a manager told us they've installed lights, hired a security guard and are considering putting cameras in the employee parking lot.

Lap's also paid for the broken car windows.

Two weeks ago, employees at the Original Oyster House were robbed at gunpoint. Police made arrests in the case and say it was an inside job.

If you have any information about the car burglaries at Lap's, call the Spanish Fort Police Dept.
