At least one intruder broke into a west Little Rock restaurant and made off with a pair of cash registers, a burglary similar to a break-in reported at another eatery in the same area around the same time, authorities said.
The burglary at Chi's Dimsum & Bistro at 6 Shackleford Road was reported the same day as one at Tokyo House at 11 Shackleford Road. No arrests have been made in either case.
In the Chi's break-in, the intruder broke front-door glass and stole the cash registers sometime after the restaurant was locked up around 9:50 p.m. Sunday, according to a Little Rock Police Department report. The theft was reported the next morning after an employee arrived for work.
The alarm at Tokyo House, meanwhile, went off around 4:20 a.m. Monday, which prompted officers to check on the restaurant.
A report in that break-in stated a cash register appeared to have been "rummaged through," and it also listed a register and a safe — both with money in them — as having been stolen. The intruder or intruders got in by breaking a window on the front door.
No suspect information or description was listed in either report.
