Closing Mass. restaurant robbed of mementoes

SAUGUS, Mass. (AP) - Police say some fans of the soon-to-close Hilltop Steakhouse in Saugus are stealing mementoes of the famous restaurant.

Lt. Ronald Giorgetti said since ownership announced that the 52-year-old restaurant would close Sunday, plates with the eatery's logo, leather-bound menus and even antique pots worth $600 each have disappeared, likely lifted by nostalgic diners.

Some of the items are showing up for sale on e-Bay.

Giorgetti tells The Daily Item (http://bit.ly/1c1Lkcw ) police hope to use the Internet auction site to track down the person or persons responsible for the alleged thefts.

The Hilltop on Route 1 in Saugus was once one of the busiest restaurants in the nation, known for its giant neon cactus and fiberglass cows outside, and its numerous dining rooms named after western cities.

    In the stylish Condesa neighborhood young revelers typically spill out from dimly lit bars and restaurants on a Friday night. But the first weekend since the 7.1-magnitude earthquake toppled buildings just blocks away began on a somber note.
