One suspect is at large after a break-in and robbery at Crown Candy Kitchen in the 1400 block of St. Louis Avenue early Tuesday morning.

“We’ve been here 102 years and this is only the third time, that I know of, that something like this has happened,” said Andy Karandzieff, owner of Crown Candy. “And all three times, it’s only just been change out of the register, nothing else.”

Karandzieff, who lives above the restaurant, said he heard glass shatter and his security alarm begin to sound just after midnight on Tuesday.

When he went downstairs into the restaurant he noticed a window on the east side of the building was broken.

The unknown suspect broke in through the window and stole change from the cash register before fleeing on foot, police said…
