Chicago police are looking for a man who stole nearly 400 pounds of marinated meat last month from a restaurant on the city's North Side.The heist happened at around 2am on Sept. 16 in the basement of JK Kabab House.
Restaurant manager Majid Mustafa said someone entered through the alley and slipped through an iron gate to gain entrance to the basement and the walk-in cooler where the restaurant's chef marinates the meat overnight.
Surveillance video from the alley shows the suspect unsuccessfully trying to haul the food away on a bicyle. He then finds a shopping cart and takes off with the cargo in tow.
The meat, which the restaurant purchases daily, is left in spices overnight and gets used the next day. In all 384 pounds of beef, chicken and lamb were stolen, Mustafa said. It adds up to a loss between $800 and $900, plus revenue lost when the restaurant had to open a few hours late.
