Robber Rips Away Chrystie Street Storefront to Steal ATM
This image has been archived or removed.
There was no such beginner’s luck for juice cafe/bubble tea newcomer 1st Stop at the southwest corner of Chrystie and Hester. Yesterday morning, a robber reportedly tried to make off with the storefront ATM. Discreet would not be the proper adjective for this attempted heist, though.
A couple of witnesses at the scene told us that the perp used truck and chain to pry the ATM from its housing. As a result, the entire Chrystie facade is now a mangled mess. Broken glass, twisted grates, and other debris. The money machine was still on the ground as of yesterday afternoon, so at this moment, we’re unsure what, if anything, the perp stole.
No word yet on the identity, either.
Meanwhile, 1st Stop is temporarily closed.
