Martina and Flanagan, who both live in Manhattan, stole from Smoothie Shack, Francine Bistro and Camden Cone.
Camden Cone cashier Nick Greer was the first employee in after the robbery.
‘I saw that the window was taken apart, and that looked odd, so I called the owner and asked if that was normal, and she said no,’ Greer said in an interview. ‘Then I opened the front door, and I saw that the register was not there, and I had to call the owner again. She was not happy.’
Greer says that Flanagan ‘summered in Camden for his whole life’ but that he had never seen Martins before.
‘It’s kind of funny because it doesn’t sound like she needs to be stealing anything,’ he said.
Investigators caught Martins and Flanagan after receiving an anonymous tip and reviewing surveillance footage which shows them walking down the street in dark clothing near one of the businesses.
Camden Police Department Detective Curt Andrick told the Maine newspaper drugs and alcohol were a factor in the burglaries, but would not provide further details.
Flanagan and Martins were both caught by surveillance cameras as they carried out their heist, burglarizing three businesses in Camden, New Jersey.
