Last week, we were first to report that a number of restaurants on Broome Street were burglarized in an early-morning heist. Turns out the same suspects were behind more than just the handful of businesses near the corner of Ludlow Street.

A total of six establishments in Chinatown/Lower East Side were hit in April, but Erin McKenna’s Bakery (nee Babycakes) suffered the worst, with $1,600 in cash stolen from the premises.
