40-year-old John Fradet was arrested late last week after breaking in to the same Second Street restaurant on four separate occasions to steal a grand total of $33,000 in booze. According to CBS5, Fradet broke in to the restaurant on the 500 block of Second Street three times during a two week period in July and was finally brought down by cops staking out the restaurant on August 2nd. Video footage connected Fradet to the three earlier bar break-ins.
On each break-in, the suspect allegedly gained entry by smashing a window. On his final attempt, Fradet, who is not surprisingly on active parole for burglary, was caught red handed with seven grand worth of the sauce. While the police report doesn't name the specific restaurant where Fradet repeatedly raided the liquor cabinet, Ozone Thai at Second and Brannan seems like a likely target with its glassed-in patio just ripe for the smashing.
