Two men smashed their way into Desi Galli early yesterday morning at 172 Avenue B.
The break-in occurred a little before 6 a.m. Owner PriaVanda Chouhan told EVG contributor Stacie Joy that the thieves took an iPad that the quick-serve restaurant used for music and about $1,000 in cash.
"They didn't get anything else because our neighbor's dog started barking. [The neighbor] heard them smashing things so she called the cops," Chouhan said. "She yelled out the window, 'The cops are coming!' and they ran out the door. They were in the restaurant for two minutes. Other than the door, nothing was damaged."
"We are looking at gates, but I need to talk to my landlord because security should be part of my lease," she said.
