Investigators have revealed someone broke into the restaurant twice in recent months, most recently over the weekend where nothing was stolen. However, in the other instance on July 3, police say money and alcohol was taken.

"There have been two recent incidents of break-and-enter to this location, and after an investigation by the fire marshal we are considering it to be a suspicious fire at this time," said Windsor police Const. Bianca Jackson. 

Police are asking anyone in the area to review surveillance footage or dash cam video for anything suspicious.
