Thieves steal tills, cash, iPad from Canberra cafe Teddy Picker's

Thieves have targeted a Canberra cafe overnight, using a table to smash a window before stealing tills, an iPad and a cash box.

Teddy Picker's Cafe owner Caleb Evans said his business partner arrived at the Campbell cafe about 4.30am on Wednesday to discover the floor covered in glass.

He estimated the break-in would cost the business "a couple of grand".

"A huge window has been taken out using one of the tables from outside, and they've come in and ripped out the tills and taken an iPad and cash box with change in it," Mr Evans said.

Police were on the scene about 6am, and after a quick clean-up, the cafe was trading again by 8am.

A spokesman for ACT Policing said investigations into the burglary were ongoing, but urged anyone with information to contact police.

"It didn't keep us down for too long, and most people use cards these days anyway," Mr Evans said.

Mr Evans was hopeful that cameras at The Pedlar, a pub next door to the cafe, might shed some light on who was responsible.

Witnesses were asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
