Thieves broke into a restaurant on Flagler Street overnight and stole a safe that contained $35,000 in cash.
According to NBC 6, burglars broke into El Caribe Café at 7173 W Flagler St. sometime between midnight and 4 a.m. Monday.
The thieves got into the restaurant by breaking into a neighboring business and entering through a wall. Once inside the restaurant, they took the safe and the surveillance system, according to owner Juan Alvarado.
About four months ago, thieves broke into the same restaurant, entering through the roof.
Police are investigating the crime and doubt one thief acted alone.
