Despite broken glass and a missing till and iPad from a break-in overnight, the Teddy Picker’s team, and co-owner Caleb Evans, is still serving their customers their favourite coffees.
Located on Constitution Avenue, Teddy Picker’s opening team was in for a shock this morning (21st March) when they found their workplace in disarray with broken glass scattered throughout the building.
Co-owner Caleb Evans said that one till with an iPad connected to it and a cash box with a couple of thousand dollars was all that was taken in the “strange” break-in.
Evans and his team will have to fix the broken windows and an expensive piece of coffee equipment which was damaged in the robbery.
“It was a bit of weird one, we found it like on the floor out of a box, just thrown on the ground where the glass was. It’s hard to understand their motives, they left stuff in here that was expensive, things that you think a robber would like to take, like a laptop. I would say the break-in was very rushed.”
Police advised Evans to just clean up the mess and keep trading since it was unlikely that forensics with no real surface would be able to help in any way.
So the team got the cafe up and running again, only missing one hour of service.
“We are fully going. We do catering for another cafe so we made sure their delivery was organised and then we kept serving.”
“Some of the building guys around here have been really nice and they will patch it up with some wood and make sure it is nice and secure while we wait for the glass to be made.”
Teddy Picker’s is now back to full service, serving all-day breakfast with a wide range of coffees and teas. Pop down to Consitution Avenue to show them your support
