A man reportedly stole tens of thousands of dollars from a New York City restaurant before coming back to the establishment the next month and unsuccessfully trying to rob it again, according to NBC 4 New York.
Law enforcement said the man opened a safe with a key and lifted $20,000 in cash from Manhattan’s Cosme restaurant on July 28, the outlet reported. Police said the man showed up at the restaurant and went to its back office again in August, but failed to crack the safe a second time.
NYPD Crime Stoppers tweeted that the individual had not yet been identified and indicated that he was still at large, displaying footage of him inside the restaurant.
The man broke into the restaurant in the morning prior to its opening for dinner in both instances, according to NBC 4 New York.
By the week of Sept. 29, year-to-date reported burglaries were up roughly 32.4% in New York City compared to the same time in 2021, NYPD data showed. Reported grand larceny and grand larceny auto increased by around 43.4% and 38% respectively.
