The owner of the Hiawatha Bar is confused after someone set off the burglary alarm but reportedly stole no items from the business.

Authorities believe the suspect may have only slept in the bar, as they found a two-by-four on the floor, which may have been laid in the door handles to barricade the door while he or she slept inside. Austin police received the burglary report at about 5:15 a.m. Monday. There are no suspects at this time.
