He took a dolly from the business next door, and used that to get the safe to his car. This all happened happened smack in the middle of the afternoon on Monday.

The business is on a busy stretch of US Highway 20 in Portage, Ind.

So what was inside the safe? The owner says not much cash. Mostly important documents.
