Local Resident Charged in Burglary of Billy's BBQ and Pizza

On Jan. 2, at about 10 a.m., Silver City Police officers were dispatched to Billy's BBQ and Pizza, 2138 E. Highway 180, in reference to a burglary at the restaurant. Officers were told, according to police documents, that an individual, later identified as Bryan Kyle Grabbe, 37, of Silver City, had gained entry to the establishment through the front door, which had been damaged. Surveillance cameras in the restaurant showed Grabbe in the bar area where he attempted to open the register but was unsuccessful, the documents said. Footage then showed Grabbe picking up a beverage from the side of the refrigerator and taking a drink from it. Footage also showed, documents stated, Grabbe tearing down one of the surveillance cameras near the bar. At this time, Grabbe reportedly looked directly into another camera, which showed an "obvious large tattoo on the right side of the individual's neck." The restaurant's owner identified the intruder as Grabbe as he had worked for the owner as a cook for about a month in October 2014, before being terminated.
