A man who broke into a Port Jefferson Station restaurant and stole cash is still on the loose and cops are looking for the public’s help to catch the thief.
On Sept. 21 at about 12:40 a.m., a lone robber kicked in the glass of the front door to Il Porto Bello Italian Restaurant on Route 112 and entered the store. The man – who is described as white with a bald head – then took $150 from a drawer beneath the front counter and left through the same door. He was dressed in a hooded flannel sweatshirt, light colored pants and white sneakers at the time. His identity is currently unknown.
