Burglar cuts hole in sub shop roof, but gets nothing

A burglar who cut a hole in the roof of the newly rebuilt Harry's Sub Shop, in the 400 block of Baltimore Blvd., escaped with nothing about 3 a.m. Friday, state police reported.

Troopers said they responded to an alarm at the shop and discovered someone had climbed to the roof and cut a hole in it, tied a rope to a piece of wood and used the rope to get in the bathroom.

The intruder apparently searched for money before leaving the restaurant, which has been open for about two weeks after the old building was razed and a new one built.

The owner told police no money was left in the sandwich shop overnight. Damage to the roof was estimated at $500.
