A Donelson bowling alley was burglarized overnight Thursday.

Police told News 2 the burglars smashed a glass window in the front of the business to break into Strike and Spare on Old Lebanon Road sometime between Midnight and 2 a.m.

Once inside, they used a crowbar to get into a safe that was hidden in a back room and took items from it.

They also ripped a security camera from the ceiling and damaged the cash registers. The thieves got away with cash and a cell phone.

The manager, Johnnie Welch, was sleeping in the back of the business.

He told News 2 he didn't hear anything and called 911 after he discovered the damage early Friday morning.

Police are working to get footage from security cameras.

The business has since reopened.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
