Oh, no!  Not the lasagna!

An East Orchard Mesa business owner lost between $500 and $1,000 in products Saturday night when someone robbed a walk-in freezer outside the store.

Marilyn Schanaman, owner of Eta Pi, 3415 C 1/2 Road, said that sometime Saturday night, after she and her family went to bed, someone broke the lock on the freezer door and stole about 50 pounds of frozen peaches, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, between 20 and 30 gallons of ice cream, a bag of flour, a bag of sugar, some milk and several pans of lasagna.

“Which was the only thing my kids were upset about,” Schanaman said. “That was my homemade lasagna.”

She said the freezer is about two car lengths from the family’s home, so she and her husband bought a security system that day.

“At first I thought it was mostly ice cream and I was thinking it was some dumb kid,” she said, “but what kid takes a bag of flour? They would have had to have a big van or flatbed or something.”

According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office, there have been several thefts from autos in that area recently.

■ Keely J. Rollins, 22, was issued a summons June 18 in the 2700 block of Crossroads Boulevard on suspicion of prostitution-related offenses.
