No ‘Crate Escape’ For Would-Be Liquor Thief

By Brian Magoolaghan

A Brooklyn teenager is accused of breaking into a Breezy Point bar in late June and trying to get away with a milk crate filled with booze and beer, according to court records.

Matthew Kennedy, 18, of 2269 East 65 Street, Brooklyn, was arrested on July 26 and charged with third degree burglary and attempted petit larceny.

Kennedy allegedly broke into the Sugar Bowl bar at 1 Oceanside Avenue in Breezy Point, but was caught holding the crate “filled with assorted liquor bottles, and assorted beer” by a security guard, the court records say.

Police said they are investigating to see if Kennedy is the also man responsible for a similar Breezy Point break-in, which happened this summer. No other charges have been filed against Kennedy as yet.

Kennedy was arraigned on July 28. Queens Criminal Court Judge Joseph Zayas set his bail at $5,000. He is due back in court on August 10.
