Burglary Of Shogun 1 An Inside Job
A chef who usually slices and dices meat and shrimp was also a burglar who stripped the Shogun 1 Restaurant in Broad Channel, where he cooked on the Hibachi Tables, of money, computer equipment and cameras, police say.
When Byung Lee, the owner of the Japanese restaurant, came to work on the morning of December 20, he found the rear door broken and $300 missing, along with three NCR computers, three Epson printers and four SONY Cameras.
Police detectives from the 100 Precinct Squad focused on employee David Cheu, 48, who lives in Bayside.
A search of Cheu's apartment revealed the stolen goods, court records show.
The goods allegedly stolen by Cheu were valued at more than $3,000, court records say.
Cheu was arraigned on January 3 on charges of burglary, grand larceny and possession of stolen property.
He was released on his own recognizance for his next court date, which is set for January 25.
