Marc Giauque, KSL Newsradio Thieves broke into two of Joe Cottam's restaurants, now he is offering a unique reward for the right information.

It happened at the Farr West Melina's Mexican Restaurant and at another one in Brigham City.

Cottam says the thieves got away with about $5000. Now he's hoping a reward offer of 500 tacos will lead to an arrest. He says, "In the end, who knows if we'll get it solved anyway. It's hard to catch these guys. My opinion is a disgruntled employee that I actually got rid of a couple of weeks ago."

The problem is that employee's fingerprints are all over the restaurant, making the case that much more difficult to prove.
