Similar incidents have occurred at other Arab owned businesses in the area, but Al-Basha Subs was the first to provide a tape featuring one of the thieves in the process.
He drove off in a vehicle that appears to be a 2005-2008 Honda Civic. Detectives are working on the case. Sobh says oftentimes businesses have the boxes chained down, which help prevent such incidents. Al-Mabarrat charity has never experienced anything similar to this before. If you have any information contact the Dearborn or Dearborn Heights police departments.
