BURGLARS used a brick to smash the front door of the McCrae cafe Merchant and Maker last week. Cash was stolen in the robbery, early morning Monday 31 July. It was the second break-in at the cafe in several months.

“Cash was stolen from the register and our crucial morning trade was completely disrupted,” head roaster Ryan Toleman said. “Police are here now dusting for fingerprints.”

Another nearby Pt Nepean Rd cafe was also broken into at around the same time.
