Fully-Clothed Bandit Burgles Bikini Barista Stand

Detectives want you to take a close look at some video footage, recorded earlier this month inside a “bikini barista” coffee stand in Georgetown.

If the man in the footage seems a bit overdressed–in his mask, mask, gloves, jeans and a t-shirt–it’s because he’s a burglar, and police are hoping you recognize him through his disguise.

Surveillance cameras were rolling just after midnight on May 19th when the suspect pried his way into the coffee stand, located in the 6100 block of 4th Avenue South. After rifling through the shop’s cabinets and fridge, the suspect made off with juice, muffins, cookies and cash.

Detectives are also investigating whether the same suspect may have broken into another coffee stand–also “of the bikini variety,” according to investigators–in the 500 block of S. Michigan Street a day later. In that case, someone pried their way into the shop at 3 AM and stole the entire cash register. Detectives haven’t yet obtained any footage from that case.

If you recognize the suspect or have any other information about the coffee stand break-ins, please contact South Precinct detectives at (206) 386-1855.
