PHOENIX – A man on suspicion of wearing a wig while breaking into a downtown Chandler steakhouse and stealing $ 14,500 was arrested last week, authorities said.
Patrick Intintoli, 40, was held in Maricopa County Jail on July 15 on counts of burglary and criminal damage.
The July 4 incident at the DC Steakhouse on Arizona Avenue south of Chandler Boulevard was captured on indoor and outdoor surveillance video, court documents show.
The video shows a man breaking a safe containing a key to the steakhouse around 8:30 a.m., according to the probable cause statement. Police said he then broke into the principal’s office and took a small safe filled with $ 12,000 and also opened a freezer in the bar to get a bag of money of $ 2. $ 500.
Intintoli matches the description of the subject in the video other than on the top of his head, police said. Intintoli is bald, but the man in the video had hair hanging off the back of a baseball cap.
However, the hair did not cover a distinctive tattoo on the subject’s neck that resembles Intintoli’s body art, police said.
Intintoli was taken into custody at his residence in Mesa. Police said they found objects from the video in the house as well as a foam wig head.
In addition to the loss of money, the restaurant suffered damage estimated at $ 15,000, police said.
