Shop Owner Working With Falls Church Police to Catch Bandit

Vietnamese American Chamber of Commerce president says incident raised concern in community.

Binh Nguyen said the owners of the Saigon Bakery and Deli are working with Falls Church police to catch man who stole more than $2,000 earlier this month from a locked drawer.

Nguyen, president of the Vietnamese American Chamber of Commerce, said no one wants to see criminals get away because that could trigger more incidents in the future.

“Of course in any unfortunate incident like this one raises concern for every one in the community, as I know the owner is cooperating with the investigation to catch the bandit,” Nguyen said Tuesday.  

On Jan. 4, a man walked into the bakery and reached over the counter and stole the money from a drawer and walked out of the store. A surveillance video camera caught the man

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Detective J.M. Elliott at 703-248-5068 or jelliott@fallschurchva.gov.

how can a man just reach over a counter and remove money from a "locked" drawer? Didn't happen that way. The drawer wasn't locked. Plus how did this man know that money was in that drawer?
