Thieves steal $100,000 in equipment from restaurant supplier in Burbank

Burbank police are seeking leads in a burglary this weekend at a restaurant supply store in which $100,000 worth of cooking equipment was stolen.

The burglary occurred sometime between Friday at 8 p.m. and Monday at 9 a.m., when the suspects broke into Cook’s Warehouse -- located at 2504 North Ontario St. -- and stole three large storage boxes containing pots, pans, knives, tables and chairs, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

Upon entering, the suspects taped over the security cameras.

“Obviously, someone, either in several trips or with a large truck, entered…and took all of that,” Ryburn said.

Anyone with information was encouraged to call Burbank police at (818) 238-3210.
