In the middle of August, the Grenzwert Bar on Rheingasse was severely damaged by fire. The building is in danger of collapse.

It was only this week the bar owner was allowed back onto the premises. Then she noticed a safe was missing and several of the wallets used by the staff had been emptied. The owner believes several thousand francs are missing.

The building had been under 24 guard by private security guards. The owner asks how did a safe go missing in front of the guards?

A 35-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of arson.
