Morris Heights bodega calls for action after $100,000 stolen from the business
The owner of a Morris Heights bodega and members of the United Bodegas of America are speaking out after $100,000 was stolen from the business. A $10,000 reward has been put in place in hopes that someone will come forward to bring the thieves who stole from Los Castillos Mini Market to justice.
Surveillance video shows two men opening the closed door behind the registers, opening the drawers and taking the money. Investigators say they came through the back door and opened it with a crow bar.
Advocates from the United Bodegas of America say that the way the robbery went down leads them to believe the thieves are experts because they knew what to do and where to go.
