Here is my question....was the safe left open? Sorry, I find it hard to believe that we have thieves in this town brilliant enough to "crack a safe".

Few people spend on the money on a safe good enough to need a skilled "safe cracker". Your typical Walmart safe can be broken with a simple crow bar and power drill. A safe needs to be hidden, otherwise it's the first thing burglars go after.
