PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh police are looking for a bold burglar who may have stolen money from the office of a prominent local restaurant three different times, while the restaurant was open and workers were cooking in a nearby kitchen.
Carlton Restaurant owner Kevin Joyce showed KDKA’s Marty Griffin the safe in the office where he believes a former employee used a key to steal thousands of dollars.
“He was in and out of this office in less than a minute and a half,” said Joyce.
Joyce was at a loss to explain the thefts until he took a closer look at surveillance video from a camera trained on the back door of the restaurant.
On the tape you can see a man ducking out of the office where the safe is located and leaving the building, even while employees can be seen working just a room away.
Joyce says police believe the suspect is Nathan Broadus who Joyce says “showed a lot of personality” when Joyce interviewed him for a job at the restaurant.
Joyce says police believe Broadus may be responsible for other restaurant break-ins, and hopes publicizing Broadus’ photograph and the surveillance will help police to catch him.
“I’m hoping someone sees this story and says, ‘Hey Nathan, you need to turn yourself in,’” said Joyce.
