Thieves do smash-and-grab at Claremont eateries
It was a sushi smash-and-grab for thieves who broke into two Claremont eateries on Saturday, November 15 looking for more than Spicy Tuna Rolls. According to Lieutenant Mike Ciszek, unknown suspects caused $250 in damage when they smashed the glass front door at Hayato Sushi & Grill on Foothill Boulevard around 4 a.m. The would-be burglars ransacked the cash register and pried open an office door before fleeing the location empty handed. Less than an hour later, a similar crime occurred just down the street at Sushi Cruise. An unknown object was used to smash a window on the west side of the business. Once inside, the thieves smashed the cash register on the ground and ransacked another before fleeing the location undetected.
