Four restaurants on the 1900 block of East Passyunk were hit in smash and grab robberies early yesterday, in which some punk broke through the windows and grabbed the cash registers.
Fuel, Le Virtu and Adobe Cafe were hit around 1:30 a.m., according to NBC10, which reported that surveillance video showed a man lurking around outside Fuel at that time. He then ran inside and grabbed the register. Johnny Chang’s Chinese restaurant on Broad Street was also robbed, and the robber tried but failed to get into Green Olives Cafe.
Says the station:
Police say that in all four cases, the registers were taken. They were found empty Tuesday morning by a parking authority employee two blocks away ….
“…Just go get a job,” said [Fuel owner Rocco] Cima. “Get a job and stop harassing the people that actually work hard.”
The station reported that the break-ins were in addition to at least two others in the last few weeks.
