Suspect charged in smash-and-grab burglary at bar

Posted: Updated:
LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Lancaster man surrendered to authorities to face charges in a smash-and-grab burglary after a bar owner released surveillance video of the crime.

Tyler Ramos, 20, of the 600 block of St. Joseph St., has been charged with burglary and theft for the incident early Thursday at Molly's Pub, at 253 E. Chestnut Street, according to city police.

Ramos turned himself in at the police station Monday evening after one of his family members contacted Molly's Pub and gave them him his name, police said. The family member and the bar owner accompanied Ramos to the police station.

The owner had offered a $1,000 reward for information that led to an arrest.

The surveillance video shows the burglar smoking a cigarette outside the pub. Five minutes later, he is seen picking up a heavy planter, lifting it to his chest, and running forward as he throws the planter at the glass door.

After a car drives by, the thief is seen in the video as he climbs through the broken door, hops onto the counter, and steals cigarettes.

Between repairs to the door and the stolen cigarettes, the bar owner said damage from the crime topped $3,700.
