Thief breaks in through ceiling at Deerfield Beach Cici's Pizza

BSO: $6,419 stolen from safe

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – The Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating a burglary at a Cici's Pizza in Deerfield Beach that occurred July 28.

Deputies said a man entered the restaurant at 3912 W. Hillsboro Blvd, through the air conditioner on the roof. They said he removed the A/C panels and crawled through the ceiling and into the business.

Once inside, the thief used a grinder to cut two holes into the business safe and stole $6,419.

The owner believes the man has knowledge of the business because he managed to bypass the alarm motion sensors by crawling on the floor to where the safe was stored.
