Someone trashed Amin Indian restaurant in Fort Greene — and then got trashed — on Aug. 14.
Sometime after the DeKalb Avenue eatery closed for the night, a no-gooder smashed the front door of the restaurant, entered, wrecked the place, and made off with cases of wine and $25.
The crook was caught on video surveillance from Elly’s Market across the street, so cops have a lot to go on.
It’s not the first time that the humble Indian restaurant near Clermont Avenue has been burglarized. Last year, during a spate of overnight break-ins along DeKalb Avenue, someone took $200, wine, two calculators, a lighter and a flashlight.
And the latest break-in comes during a bad week for crime in the 88th Precinct, which includes Fort Greene and Clinton Hill. There were four burglaries during the week ending on Aug. 16, up from one during the same week last year. And robberies were up to eight from just two over the same period last year.
Over the last month, robberies are up 75 percent from the same month last year, though they are down 18 percent so far this year.
