A little while ago I came across the video you'll find after the jump, in which a man can be seen breaking into Observer staff favorite Sal's Pizza on Wycliff Sunday morning. Police report says the man, driving an '02 Ford Expedition, popped the deadbolt and got off with $200 in cash -- not to mention a cash register worth $500 -- and not before trying to pry the teevee off the wall. DPD spokesman Senior Corporal Kevin Janse says the same guy -- "a Latin or white male in his 20s or 30s" -- may be responsible for two other burglaries at an auto repair shop on Mockingbird and a live-music joint called Take 482 on Storey Lane last month -- exact same m.o. DPD says if you have info, call the Northwest Investigative Section at (214) 671-6047.
