D’s restau­rant grog grab

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - AN­GELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

THE young owner of Moss­man’s pop­u­lar D’s Steak­house restau­rant is putting steel bars on all the win­dows af­ter it was robbed last week.

Thieves broke into the restau­rant by gain­ing en­try through the kitchen win­dow, ripped the seat cov­ers off the new couch and filled them with up to $3500 worth of al­co­hol.

All of the drinks, in­clud­ing cans of soft drink, were stolen from the re­frig­er­a­tors and up to $1000 cash was taken out of the cash reg­is­ter.

Owner and chef Danielle Robin­son, 22, only opened the restau­rant seven months ago and said she was dev­as­tated.

Her mother, Leigh Slade, has been help­ing her run the busi­ness and no­ticed the cash reg­is­tere had been opened about 6.15pm on Mon­day, July 25, when a re­ceipt was left on the till.

“This is re­ally dis­ap­point­ing,” Ms Slade said.

“Danielle has worked so hard and ev­ery­one has been com­pli­ment­ing her on her steaks.

“If any­one has any in­for­ma­tion about the break and en­ter we would love to hear from them.”

The thieves at­tempted to gain en­try through the roller door and the back door. Moss­man po­lice are urg­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to con­tact them on 4099 2177 with any in­for­ma­tion.
