WILLIAMSBURG — A hipster bandit snuck into a neighborhood Latin food joint and stole thousands of dollars in checks and cash, according to police.
The thief, with curly blonde hair, dressed in a hoodie and square-framed glasses, crept into Pokito — which specializes in empanadas, coconut rice and yuca nachos — at 155 S. 4th St. at 4:21 a.m. on April 3, police said.
There he grabbed $980 cash and two checks worth $2,000, police said. Surveillance camera footage captured inside the restaurant later released by police, showed the thief in action.
A manager Pokito couldn't be reached immediately for comment.
