Police looking for suspects in Bardot burglary

Claremont police are looking for two men who burglarized Bardot restaurant early Thursday morning.

The burglary was discovered just before 8:30 a.m. on May 31 when the owner arrived at the restaurant on 206 west Bonita Avenue, according to the Claremont Police Department. The front glass door had been shattered, but no suspects were seen.

Surveillance footage from the restaurant showed the two suspects shattering the front glass door around 4:23 a.m., police said. After the glass was smashed, one of the suspects entered the restaurant and into an office area while the second suspect served as a lookout. The first suspect then leaves the restaurant and the duo flee undetected.

Police did not provide the surveillance footage to the COURIER.
