Bandit covered in sheet robs liquor store

The break in at the Naughty Grape

EXPENSIVE wine and champagne were stolen in a robbery at a high-end liquor store in Malabar this week.

The  alcohol was taken from the Naughty Grape by thieves who broke through the front door.

The business at O'mera Plaza, at Omera Road, was secured by employees at around 6.10 p.m. on Monday.

A security guard reported that around 4.55 the next morning he discovered the glass door to the front of the store broken.

Closed circuit television footage showed two people - one with a sheet covering the body, and a man wearing a cap – grabbing bottles off the shelves and making trips in and out of the store.

A report was made to the Malabar Police Station.

Constable Bissessar.
