A dry cleaning and laundry store on East 74th Street was also broken into and robbed. At 6:40 AM on Tuesday, Aug. 6, a 65-year-old male employee returned to the shop to open business for the day, when he saw that the front gate had been jimmied, and he noticed broken glass on the ground. He entered the store and found that $700 had been removed from the unlocked cash register. Preliminary investigation revealed that the front gate had been jimmied from the bottom and a side glass window panel had been smashed, allowing access to the door lock inside. A large rock was found in the store, and a metal pipe was found outside. Surveillance video of the store's exterior was available.
