Police believe 7 Pa. pizzeria robberies are connected

Feb. 26, 2004

FALLS TOWNSHIP, Pa.—Police believe a string of robberies at seven pizzerias in the suburbs of Philadelphia is the work of a single pair of thieves.

According to NBC10.com, the two are suspected of more than a dozen robberies at pizzerias and other business, and their take to date is close to $100,000.

Two pizzerias have each been hit twice: Capellini's in Falls Township; and La Vera Pizza in Bristol Township.

"I just kind of crept back to where the counter was and kept my mouth shut," said Steven Moyer of Capellini's Pizza, who was robbed at gunpoint.

"They don't seem to have any fear. That's the scary part about it," said Katrina Shaw, a cook at Capellini's.

Tony's Middletown Pizza Shop was hit as well.

"We both backed up. I backed up against the oven," said owner Tony Bono. "He opened the register and he took the phone off the wall. I felt helpless. They were coming in taking my money. We work every day for it, and they took it."
