Burglars break into Ted Drewes overnight, two cash registers are missing

ST. LOUIS – Two cash registers are missing and a front window was damaged after a group of burglars broke into Ted Drewes overnight.

Police say it happened sometime between late Monday night and early Tuesday morning at the Ted Drewes on the 6000 block of Chippewa Avenue. Officers responded to a burglar alarm around 3:40 a.m. Tuesday.

“They smashed one of our front windows and took two of our cash drawers,” said Travis Dillion, owner of Ted Drewes. “And of course they were empty. It happened so fast that they grabbed the two drawers and disappeared

Dillion says the company had a spare window to replace the one that was shattered in the burglary. He says the incident was caught by surveillance cameras, which showed three suspects wearing masks and hoodies.

When police arrived, they noticed a broken window in front of the store. Investigators also learned that two cash registers were missing.

Over the years, Ted Drewes has become a favorite treat for St. Louisans and tourists alike. Ted Drewes has been selling frozen pudding for more than 80 years and Christmas trees for half a century. Customers are shocked Tuesday after someone broke into their beloved St. Louis store.

“We’ve been coming for 27 years and it’s a shame that happened,” said customer Aida Mehic. “I feel sorry for the owner and the neighborhood.”

“Ted Drewes is an icon in St. Louis, why would anyone try to do anything to damage it or tear it up? It’s awful,” said client Tom DiBello.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is conducting the investigation but has not yet released any suspicious information. Dillion says he turned surveillance footage over to police to help with the investigation.
