Bad news break-ins
Five different Eagle Rock restaurants were burglarized over the weekend in one sustained and rather brazen overnight barrage that ran from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. As the Eastsider reports, the five restaurants are Eagle Rock Italian Bakery, Casa Bianca Pizza Pie, Meeas Hot Dogs, Thai Coconut, and Piencone Pizzeria. Not each attempted score was actually successful (they didn’t get fully inside Eagle Rock Italian Bakery, for example), but the unnamed robbers did get away with unspecified amounts of cash and other valuables from registers and safes. Police are still looking for suspects.
