An Auburndale business was robbed of an eye-popping amount of money earlier this month.
Police say that on August 11, at about 3:30 a.m., the suspect pictured above entered The Oasis Cafe, located at 196-30 Northern Boulevard, through an open rear door.
The burglar then got inside a locked room and stole $26,000 in cash and $3,000 in checks from an “unsecured safe.” It begs the question: what good is a safe if it’s not secured?
The suspect then left the cafe in an unknown location.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or ubmit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM.
