Bungling thieves make off with unopened till - not realising it was empty
Three hooded people targeted the 5b Urban Bar in Limehouse, in Three Colt Street, shortly after 12am on Sunday.
After struggling for several minutes to get the drawer open, they left with the entire cash register.
The pub’s owner, Mark Slankard, 55, a former police officer in Chicago, US, who has run the venue for almost 25 years, said the thieves also took some spirits and an iPad.
He branded them “Mr North Face, Mr grey hoodie Puma and Mr man bag” in reference to their attire.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said officers are investigating the raid. There have been no arrests.
