A cafe in Levin was al­legedly tar­geted twice by the same bur­glar in the space of a fort­night.

Mon­zas Cafe and Ice Cream Par­lour in Levin Mall was robbed on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 15, and again on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 28.

The of­fender is un­der­stood to have emp­tied the con­tents of a rub­bish bin all over the floor, be­fore tak­ing the bin bag and us­ing it to put cash into, af­ter break­ing a till’s cash drawer.

A po­lice spokesper­son said a 22-yearold Levin man was ar­rested on Thurs­day in re­la­tion to the two bur­glar­ies.
