Four Boynton businesses victims of smash and grab robberies


Hours before Boynton barber shop No Limit Kutz opened Friday morning, burglars broke the front glass door, walked inside and stole about $120 in cash.

The front door cost about $1,000, and the burglars also stole two registers. The total value of everything is about $2,120.

Boynton Beach Police say that burglary at Paz Plaza on Boynton Beach Boulevard near Congress Avenue is one of four break-ins that happened late Thursday into early Friday. And they all appear to be connected.

No one has been arrested in the crimes, and police have not released any suspect information. But Wendell Robinson, who is interning at the barber shop, said surveillance footage shows the damage was done by two burglars who wore all white and ski masks.

“We just have to prepare more,” he said Tuesday.

The owner fixed the door on Friday after finding the store burglarized.

Other break-ins happened at: Renzo’s Cafe and Pizzeria in Cross Creek Centre; Wing Wah Express in Boynton Plaza; and Dean Anthony’s Pizzeria in Boynton Commons.

All businesses are close in proximity to one another. Wing Wah and Dean Anthony’s are within a half of a mile of each other along Congress Avenue between Old Boynton Road and Ocean Drive. Renzo’s and No Limit are less than one mile from each other along Boynton Beach Boulevard between Knuth Road and where Old Boynton Road meets Southwest Eighth Street.

The burglars stole $100 in cash from Wing Wah, bringing the total loss to $600 including the damage to the front door. While the door appeared to be fixed by Tuesday, shattered glass remained on the ground.

Renzo’s remained closed Tuesday and the door was boarded up with wood. About $100 in cash was stolen, and the total loss was $600.

Joey Polimeni never leaves money at his pizza restaurant, Dean Anthony’s, so the burglars didn’t get away with anything. They smashed the store’s side door where customers place take-out orders and damaged a cabinet. Polimeni said he fixed the door the same day. The damage was estimated at about $1,050, according to police reports.

Polimeni said he’s had his restaurant in the plaza for about 18 years. He was a victim of a break-in once before, but not in the past 10 years.
