The New Cane Rosso Was Robbed of its $2,500 Prosciutto Slicer Over the Weekend

Neighbors and pizza aficionados have been eagerly awaiting the opening of Jay Jerrier's second Cane Rosso, planned for Grand and Gaston just south of White Rock Lake, since word of its existence first leaked in November. It was slated to open in the middle of April -- just about now, in other words -- but it looks like everyone will have to wait.

The restaurant was broken into not once but twice over the weekend, the thieves making off with a $2,500 prosciutto slicer, a $3,500 espresso machine and multiple sets of knives.

The first burglary happened overnight Friday and seems to have been an inside job, since the thief used a key that was kept in a security box accessible only with a key code. The second, which occurred overnight Saturday, probably wasn't. In that case, the thief didn't use a key but busted through through the sheetrock from an adjacent, vacant storefront.

The robberies appear in Dallas police reports from the weekend. Teresa Gubbins at CultureMap was first to report the burglaries. Jerrier tells CultureMap that the opening date will likely have to be pushed back.

Jerrier's Deep Ellum location was been targeted only once by criminals, and they only managed to break a lock box off the door.

It's all caused Jerrier and his staff to be much more wary, which means that would-be burglars should beware. As Dino Santonicola told Gubbins, he's not messing around. "[S]tarting this morning, I"m going to work with my new BFF -- a Ruger 357 magnum with a laser."

Sometimes you will see that the timecode is different for the video track and audio track in the Properties Panel. While Photoshop...http://ow.ly/k6f6h

At least Ascension Coffee is smart enough to have a alarm for their $20k expresso machine.

The thieves simple entered because they wanted some dough but sounds like Dino is gonna give'm a pizza of his new BFF and its not Paris either.

I didn't realize prosciutto and espresso were so popular with the B&E crowd.

This IS a World Class City.

Oddly enough, the Cornballer was left behind.

Seriously, how long before the prosciutto slicer turns up in some ghetto-ass pawn shop? They will catch this person in no time unless he/she has a passion for dry-cured ham.

Unless he is sleeping in the restaurant I don't think early morning thieves need to worry about his gun. Maybe an alarm and the $50-75 response fee to the police may be in order.

@jjerrier ok, thats cool, but in the context that the quote was included how could anyone here possibly know that you were joking?

Turning up at a pawnshop just means you have to pay to buy it back.  The experience in my neighborhood is that the police won't even bother going to the person who pawned it -- no direct chain of custody -- heck, he could have found it lying in the street.

@ScottsMerkin Another problem with making a statement like that is if you have to shoot it can be used against you in court.

Well he did refer to his gun as his "BFF"...but I guess this is Texas.

@lorlee You don't have to buy it back.  You can wait a couple months for the stolen item to go through the impound/evidence/seizure/whatever process, then get it from the police.  That 's what I did with a computer that was stolen from my house.

But yes, I had the same experience with the police not even talking to the guy who sold it at the pawn shop, despite the fact he was arrested a few days later for burglarizing vehicles.

Yes, I can hear the prosecutor or plaintiff's attorney now ----

"So,  Mr. Santonicola, after you lost a few items, you decided to go buy and carry a deadly weapon?  Do you have a concealed carry permit?  How much training did you have with it?  When did you decide that your possessions were more important than a human life?  Isn't it true that within days of that robbery, you received a check from your insurance company that paid for the loss?  What are you Mr. Santonicola, Wyatt Earp hunting down the bad guys and taking vengeance into your own hands?  Who else was in your vigilante posse?"

That was slyly fantastic, X-Paul.
