From the March 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
In recent weeks, Glover Park restaurants have been hit with a rash of alcohol thefts. OK, a pair of alcohol thefts. On January 19 around 6 p.m., a man entered Old Europe (2434 Wisconsin Ave.) and placed a carryout order, according to a police report. As his server went to the rear of the store to convey the order, the man took a bottle of Der Lachs Goldwasser liqueur and left through the front door.
Then early in the morning on February 5, someone broke into Heritage India (2400 Wisconsin Ave.) through a rear door, broke a glass door to reach the restaurant’s upper level, and stole several bottles of alcohol with an estimated total value of $300, a police report stated. (The doors, by contrast, were worth $3,000, according to the report.)
