Police were called to Zaza Gastrobar on Broad Street in Stamford Thursday afternoon after $500 in high-end liquor was found to be missing from the popular restaurant.
“Yesterday at about 1 o’clock in the afternoon, they found the back door of the restaurant pried open, and after going through the restaurant, they found a missing case of alcohol,” Stamford Police Department Spokeswoman Kelly Connelly said Friday morning.
After going through the surveillance tapes kept at the restaurant, employees found footage of a black male wearing shorts and a grey hoodie and carrying a flashlight enter the premises after closing time on Thursday morning, Connelly said.
“He walked around the restaurant for a bit, and then he was seen exiting the restaurant with a box, which they assumed was the case of alcohol,” she said.
The restaurant reported a total of six bottles of tequila and vodka missing, with a total value of $500 — or about $85 a bottle.
