New London – Police say two thieves burglarized a Bank Street ice cream shop on Thursday night, making off with silver coins, credit cards and a safe that was bolted to the floor containing $600.

The theft occurred at Daniel’s Dairy Downtown, at 60 Bank St., and police said the two suspects were captured on surveillance video removing an air conditioning unit from a rear window to gain access to the shop.

The two thieves, one wearing a ski mask, appeared to know the store’s layout and the location of the items they wanted, according to a posting on the police department’s Facebook page. Surveillance footage was not immediately available.

Police urge anyone with information to call the New London Police Department Investigations Division at (860) 447-1481. Anonymous tips can be submitted by clicking on “Submit a Tip” on the department’s Facebook page, or texting “NLPDTip” + your tip to Tip411 (847411).
