A creep broke into the Dumbo Muffin coffee shop on Pearl Street and stole a stunning amount of stuff worth over $17,000 on July 18.
The manager of the café between Water and Front streets, Artum Hasani, said that he closed up the place at around 3 pm. When he returned the next morning, he found the lock to the front door had been damaged, and the door slightly ajar. Inside, someone had stolen an espresso machine, a coffee machine and a refrigerator worth $5,000 total.
Worst of all, the thief stole a painting by Jan Larsen reportedly worth $10,000. The thief also grabbed the register and a CD player.
“The business is closed,” said Hasani. “We have to fix everything.”
The muffin café opened just last March to some controversy, as it shares a name with a separate wholesale muffin operation in the neighborhood.
