Thieves Strike 12 North Brooklyn Bars and Shops in Six Weeks
GREENPOINT — A pair of burglars have targeted a dozen popular businesses in North Brooklyn since mid-June, cops said.
The cafes Oslo Coffee, Cookie Road bakery and Modca, and the restaurants Grandma Rose's pizzeria and Mrs. Kim's were also hit, an NYPD alert said. Freddy Food Market and Ameenas Florist were also burglarized.
The two men would break in through "street level entrances" and then "flee in a minivan," said the alert, and most of the burglaries were late at night or early in the morning when the establishments were closed.
The pair of thieves were caught on tape when they hit the Boulevard Tavern on Meeker Avenue July 2 at 5:33 a.m. Cops ask anyone with further information to contact crime stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
