Hodgepodge Coffeehouse Burglarized

Cash and safe stolen from East Atlanta coffee shop in overnight break-in.

Atlanta police say someone broke into the Hodgepodge Coffeehouse and Gallery in the early morning hours of Dec. 3. and stole an undetermined amount of cash, as well as a small safe.

The burglar apparently tripped an alarm when he or she broke out a window around 12 a.m. The alarm company then called police, Atlanta police spokesman Sgt. Gregory Lyon told East Atlanta Patch.

Women can be burglars, too. :-)

So unless the safe was out in the open and easily visible, the perp would have to know that it was there, and that it could be removed (ie, not bolted down). Your article does not mention whether any of this was caught on surveillance cameras, which makes me wonder if they have cameras, particularly in the area where the safe was located. Sad to say but every viable business (and household) can easily become a target.
