Strongman muscles Gorilla!

78th Precinct

Park Slope


A thief stole two safes containing a total of $2,500 from a coffee shop on Fifth Avenue on June 3.

Security cameras at Gorilla Coffee between Park and Prospect places caught the thief at 4 am opening the shop with a key. He then removed both safes from the storage room — whether it was from big, gorilla-like muscles or some other method, the cameras didn’t catch — before the shop opened for business that day.
