Thieves steal 20 pounds of fresh pasta from Brooklyn restaurant night before Christmas Eve

WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A newly-opened restaurant in Williamsburg says it was burglarized the night before Christmas Eve, but the thieves were only after one thing - homemade pasta.

The owner of Borsalia says someone broke into the kitchen through the basement by drilling a hole in the wall, then made off with 20 pounds of pasta, freshly made by the chefs the night before.

The burglars also stole $40 in cash but didn't touch anything else.
