The NYPD is looking for at least two suspects believed to behind more than 16 burglaries in the city, including several in the East Village late last month.
Here's part of the story today via Town & Village:
On either late December 30 or the morning of December 31, they got into Red House, a Chinese takeout place on 203 East 14th Street and Third Avenue, by forcing open the basement door. There they snatched $1,000 in cash.
On December 31 at 2 a.m., three individuals forced open an exit door at Otto’s Tacos at 141 Second Avenue and East 9th Street. They attempted to pry open the cash register and an office door but were unsuccessful. They fled the location emptyhanded when a store employee entered the establishment. (The owner declined to comment when called about the incident.)
At around the same time, the burglars successfully managed to get inside Mango Mango at 23 St. Marks Place by forcing open the front door. They stole $350 in cash and the business’s surveillance system hard drive.
In total, the suspects have taken nearly $54,000 from the various businesses. The NYPD's descriptions of the suspects are quite vague: white and male, basically.
Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You may also submit tips online.
