Benny Tudino’s has GIANT safe stolen
Rumor floating around now is that this safe was found somewhere in South Jersey (not sure where yet). It had apparently been opened using a blow-torch. More further details if I get around to investigating it.
From the Jersey Journal online. And you thought Benny’s only had giant slices!
Safe stolen from Hoboken pizzeria
Thieves broke into Benny Tudino’s Pizzeria on Washington Street in Hoboken and made off with a huge haul — literally.
Somehow, the thieves got away with the restaurant’s 298-pound safe, police reports said.
“I don’t know how they carried it out,” said Tony Nuhic, the pizzeria’s manager. “When they brought it in, there were four of them.”
Benny Tudino’s, founded in 1968 and billing itself as the home of Hoboken’s “largest slice,” was closed during the robbery, which police believe happened Monday sometime between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m.
The thieves apparently broke the lock on the front door, went into the basement and hauled out a 298-pound safe containing an undisclosed amount of money. The safe itself was valued at $675, reports said.
