Burglars rob Pikes Peak Summit House

The Gazette reported today that a group of folks broke into the Pikes Peak summit house Saturday night by breaking a window, then busted open the managers office, perhaps because it had the words "cash room" painted on them, and cleaned the place out. They apparently stole a highway truck to reach the summit on the closed road. Workers discovered the break-in Sunday morning.

Sounds like an inside job to me. Who would ever consider robbing the summit house but someone who had spend a lot of time there?

Apparently no donuts were taken.

Sounds like an inside job to me too. Only an insider would know if there were any cameras or caretakers anywhere along the 20 mile route after hours too. You have to be pretty confident to rob a place at the end of a 20 mile dead end, and not think you'll get caught coming down.
