Man Uses Vacuum Cleaner to Break Into Bakery, Steals Cake

A man described by the 19th Precinct as a “known criminal” was arrested after stealing a cake and breaking into a store with a vacuum cleaner this weekend.

It happened on Sunday at about 11:15 p.m., when a witness spotted 40-year-old Darryl Simmons unlawfully entering Breads Bakery at 1294 Third Avenue (between 74th and 75th streets), where police say he ‘removed a cake.’ He then tried to invade the Nuts Factory next door (at 1290 Third Avenue), again using a vacuum cleaner to gain entry, before running off. The businesses respectfully close at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.

No injuries were reported as a result of these incidents.

Simmons, a resident of the Bronx, was quickly arrested on burglary and criminal mischief charges. He appeared in court on Monday and pleaded not guilty. Simmons was released without bail and is due back in court on July 2.
