PLAINFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Plainfield police believe the same thief burglarized two restaurants on Monday.

At about 2:30 a.m. Mr. Z’s Restaurant, located on Norwich Road, was burglarized by a thief driving a black SUV, according to police. The driver — who police believe is a white man wearing a light-colored zip-up sweatshirt, along with jeans, Under Armour sneakers, a surgical mask, glasses and gloves — broke into the building and stole “a significant sum” of money.

About 30 minutes later, the same man burglarized the Hong Kong Star on Lathrop Road, according to police.
