Crustacean, the high-end seafood restaurant on North Bedford Drive, experienced a burglary in the early morning of Jan. 2, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department. An unspecified number of suspects made off with liquor and currency valued at an estimated $128,000.
Representatives for the restaurant did not respond to a request for comment by press time.
Beverly Hills has experienced a spate of high-profile crimes in recent months. Apparent attempts at burgling Louis Vuitton and Saks Fifth Avenue in November failed when bullet-proof glass refused to break.
According to Lt. Giovanni Trejo, BHPD is “still working on determining the point of entry” for the Crustacean burglary.
The city saw an uptick in property crime from November to December, the most recent month for which data is available, according to Chief Mark Stainbrook. Stainbrook told the City Council at a Jan. 4 meeting that the city experienced 110 property crimes in December, up from 102 in November.
