BELLINGHAM - Police are reminding downtown businesses to have video surveillance and keep less cash in their stores after a burglary Sunday at Man Pies, the second similar downtown burglary in a month.
Police responded to an alarm around 4 a.m. Sunday, May 11, at Man Pies, 1215 Railroad Ave.
Someone had forced their way into the building and took only cash, Bellingham Police Lt. Bob Vander Yacht said.
Sharon Curran, one of the owners, wasn't sure how much money had been taken but estimated $2,200.
A window was broken and the cash registers were badly damaged, Curran said.
Man Pies has cameras in the restaurant, but the burglar was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and never turned on the light. There are no suspects, Vander Yacht said.
A similar burglary happened recently at Green Frog Acoustic Tavern at 1015 N. State St. In both cases there was forced entry and only money taken, Vander Yacht said.
Man Pies was open for business Monday as usual.
