That same night -- between 2:25 a.m. and 2:53 a.m. -- according to a police report, Oasis Grill and Wine lounge in the 700 block of Main Street was also burglarized. In that theft, $242 in cash was taken, along with a bottle of Cakebread Cabernet valued at $798 and six bottles of Silver Oak Cabernet worth $708, along with Red Bull energy drinks and grapefruit juice.
