Thief stops for a quick drink while burgling milkshake cafe


The moment a thief decided to take a quick break from burgling a milkshake cafe to have a drink has been caught on CCTV.

The audacious thief seemed positively relaxed while he ransacked the Shaketastic cafe in Barnet.

He stole cash and electrical equipment.

The burglary happened on June 18 at some point between 12.45am and 10.30am the next morning.

The door’s shutters had been broken into, the padlock had been smashed and the front door damaged.

A television was stolen and money taken from the safe.

The suspect is described as a white clean shaven man with short hair. He was wearing a light coloured T-shirt, black trousers and a dark-hooded anorak.

We are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the man shown on CCTV.
