Crime: Money Stolen from Abbaye Bar in Northern Liberties


The Philadelphia Police is looking for the public’s help to identify suspects for a burglary at the Abbaye Bar & Restaurant in Northern Liberties. $15,000 was stolen from the pleasant neighborhood bar at 3:55 a.m. Friday, August 9th.

Two males forced open a first floor window and took a safe (which was empty) and $15,000 cash from a small lock box.

UPDATE: A post to the Abbaye Facebook page states that only a small amount of petty cash, not $15,000 was taken.

Suspect #1: White male, 30 years-of-age, short beard, 5’10?-6’0?, thin build, wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and a light colored baseball cap.

Suspect #2: White male, 30 years-of-age, 5’8?-5’10?, heavy build, wearing a white sleeveless t-shirt, blue jean shorts, black sneakers and a light colored baseball cap.

    From The Abbayes facebook….
    all who saw article about break in on Friday, the 9th of August. The
    information about the amount of money that was taken is completely
    incorrect. The safe that was taken was empty and the lock box contained a
    small amount of petty cash. There is never that amount of money here
    ever. I am contacting the authorities to have a retraction and
    Maybe get the facts straight before you post this stuff…
