A Papa John’s Pizza about two blocks east of the Marine Barracks had a run in with two burglars early yesterday morning, a day after a masked man with a gun robbed the shop, police said.
The burglary happened at the Papa John’s at 914 11th St. SE about 4 a.m. Thursday.
A surveillance camera caught a man smashing the shop’s glass front door with a brick, according to authorities. He went into he Papa John’s soon after and pried open two cash registers with a screwdriver.
But there wasn’t any cash inside them.
He then grabbed two liter bottles of soda and departed. Another individual entered soon after and also snatched two liter bottles of soda before fleeing.
The first thief came back, however. He grabbed his brick and then left for good.
Police haven’t released descriptions of the suspects.
