Arrest after Levin cafe robberies
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.
Video footage of the burglar was retrieved and the owners of the business were able to identify that the same offender had been involved in both incidents.
A police spokesperson said a 22-yearold Levin man was arrested on Thursday in relation to the two burglaries.
