PARK SLOPE — A restaurant that specializes in raw, gluten-free, vegan food lost a chunk of green recently, and it wasn't a glass of wheat grass juice.
An ex-employee of Sun in Bloom, on Bergen Street between Fifth and Flatbush avenues, was arrested July 19 after she allegedly stole $1,046 from a cash drawer in the restaurant, according to a police report.
Police arrested 31-year-old Theresa Dolan in connection with the crime. The restaurant's owner said a cell phone video showed Dolan allegedly taking the cash from the drawer, and Dolan allegedly sent the owner an email admitting the theft, according to the police report. Dolan was charged with felony grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny, court records show.
