The Levitt Pavilion, an outdoor concert venue that opened in Ruby Hill in 2017 and offers free concerts throughout the summer, experienced a break-in and theft this week. The organization announced the break-in via a Facebook post on Wednesday, noting that the incursion occurred sometime between 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10, and 9 a.m. on Wednesday, July 11.
A number of items were stolen from the property. While Levitt representatives declined to provide specifics when contacted by Westword Thursday morning, the Denver Police Department told us that at least one individual gained access to a garage and engaged in theft and criminal mischief.
