Bakery Thief Gets Away With an Empty Cash Register and No Baked Goods

We don't know about you, but whenever Riptide dreams of robbing a bakery, it's usually for the baked goods.

"Okay, put all the muffins and raisin bread in the bag and nobody gets hurt. This bad boy's breaking his no-carb diet tonight."

Not that we'd ever actually rob a bakery. Unfortunately Vicky Bakery on Northwest 139th Street and 67th Avenue in Miami Lakes did get hit up last Wednesday.


Not only did he not get away with any carbs, he also failed to get any cash. He walked away with an empty cash register. Though, the incident still caused $7,000 worth of damage to the store.

Police have released video, and are searching for the culprit. Anyone with tips is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
