Police were dispatched to the Volcano Night Club, 1840 E. Army Post Road, regarding a burglary on April 4. The owner of the business told police the cleaning crew had alerted him to the break-in, and that the suspects likely used a pipe to wedge the back doors open, as the doors were not locked, just the handles were wedged with pipes and a chain. The man who owned most of the stolen items was also there, and he told police that he had received several phone calls from people who had bought La Hacienda night club down the road, asking to buy chairs and other equipment. He said he believes they stole the stuff to use in their own club. Among the missing items were: various video/arcade games ($30,000), speakers ($7,500), three TVs ($1,500) and eight amps ($6,400).
