RESTAURANT ROBBERY

A Restaurant in South Fargo was robbed, and no one has any description of the suspect. 

It happened Thursday night around 10:30 at Luna Fargo in the strip mall on University Drive close to Sanford and Essentia hospitals.

Authorities say the restaurant was getting ready to close, when someone ran in, grabbed the money bag sitting on the counter, and took off.

Originally, police thought the call was for a burglary in progress and blocked off streets in the area.

No weapons were used in the robbery, and no one was hurt.

It's unknown how much cash the robber got away with.

CRIME INCREASE

More people are being robbed and their homes broken into in the past few weeks. 

There have been more than 500 reports of breaking and entering, property crime and theft in the last month, according to Fargo, West Fargo and Moorhead Police.

A homeowner in the Osgood neighborhood posted in Nextdoor, a crime watching app, about finding black electrical tape on their neighbor's door knob--potentially making it easier for people to break in.

Police say if you see anything suspicious, you should give them a call.

CONTROLLED BURN

If you see heavy smoke in West Fargo this morning, it's a controlled burn.

It will be at River's Bend Development -- North of First Street Eeast, near I-94 -- to clear out abandoned buildings and trees for future development of the area.

The burn started around 6:00 a.m. and should last about four to five hours.

The West Fargo Fire Department will be on scene to help monitor the fire.
