Burglary suspect

By Sabina Mollot

Police are looking for a man who broke into Javelina, a Tex-Mex restaurant at 119 East 18th Street, who is believed to have stolen nearly $800 worth of alcohol.

It’s unknown how the man got in, but he was seen in surveillance footage at 1:40 a.m. on Sunday, April 22, after employees had left. Cops said he left with two black garbage bags filled with bottles of alcohol.

There is no description of the suspect but a photo released by the NYPD shows a dark-eyed man who could be in his 20s or 30s with dark facial hair.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Crimestoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
