Mauricio’s Mexican Food and A&J Cake and Candy Supplies, both next to Frozen Ropes, had their front doors smashed in to gain entry, police said.

The owner of A&J told GCN the burglar took roughly $400 from cash boxes, which were smashed open with a getaway vehicle to the rear of the business.

Losses, other than the damaged doors at Frozen Ropes and Mauricio’s, were not yet known.

Video surveillance provided by Frozen Ropes showed two suspects entering the business with masks and gloves.

Lt. Rob Lamborghini of Glendora Police believes the suspects are two male Blacks.
