New Braunfels police searching for suspect in restaurant burglary

Police are looking for a man caught on camera stealing a cash register and other property from 7 Monks Café

NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas – The New Braunfels Police Department is asking for the community’s help to identify a restaurant burglary suspect.

Surveillance camera video shows a man breaking into the 7 Monks Café restaurant on the 400 block of North Seguin Avenue around 2:50 a.m. on Tuesday.

The suspect was caught stealing a cash register, tablets, a printer and other property.

“I was shocked that somebody would just come in. We’re a really small business. We’re very close to the community,” said Rashmi Bhat, owner of 7 Monks Café.

Bhat believes the suspect may have broken in through the establishment’s back door.

“More than anything, I’d really hate for any other business to go through what we’re going through,” she said.

If you have any details that could help police in this investigation, call the New Braunfels Police Department Crimestoppers Tips Line at 830-620-8477.
