Noted in the Howard County Police Daily Crime Bulletin, Friday, February 12, 2021
In the overnight hours of Feb. 11-12, unknown suspect(s) entered six restaurants in Ellicott City and Columbia by breaking the glass doors. Police are investigating whether these burglaries are related.
Ellicott City, 21043: 5700 block of Richards Valley Road, Coal Fire Pizza (nothing reported stolen) and East Moon Asian Bistro (cash and safe stolen)
Columbia, 21044: 10100 block of Twin Rivers Road, Urban Hot Pot (cash and safe stolen), Bonchon (cash stolen), Kung Fu Tea (cash stolen)
10000 block of Town Center Avenue, Corner Bakery (nothing reported stolen)
Scott E’s Blog staff had a chat with one business owner and they told me that they felt like the suspects were looking for cash in the establishments as other significant items were not taken during the burglaries.
I hope our police department find and arrest these suspect in the near future.
