LAPD Investigating Robbery at Sinners and Saints Bakery

The Los Angeles Police Department is looking for a suspect in a robbery at Sinners and Saints, a bakery located at 2547 Lincoln Boulevard.

It happened at 4:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 6.

The store owner said a guy jumped over her fence and threw a piece of cement through the window. The suspect took off with a cash register.

“We need to do something about the growing crime in the area,” said store owner Elisa Testone. “It’s hard because every day I’m at war with myself as a business owner. I don’t know what to do.”

Testone said the good news is that none of her employees were at the bakery when the incident occurred.

Testone has kept her bakery open throughout the pandemic — saying she has had incredible support from the community. “We only shut down four days during the riots. Besides that, we were able to stay open for the neighborhood.”

Testone posted a comment on Facebook telling customers they are grateful for support and ”CANT STEAL OUR VIBE… only our cash box. See you #instore or for #delivery”

Sinners and Saints is a bakery that offers divine treats produced with only the best ingredients, locally sourced whenever possible with regular and gluten-free options.

The store hours are 10 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Testone said her team is getting ready for Mothers Day.
