Bungalow Beach Bar

Bungalow Beach Bar

ATLANTIC CITY — A Pleasantville man was arrested Monday after police said he burglarized Bungalow Beach Bar on the Boardwalk overnight.

Bernard Snead, 52, was arrested early Monday after police found him carrying a bookbag containing seven bags of frozen shrimp, seven frozen steaks and two screwdrivers, police said in a news release.

Officers Tyler Daily and Sean Pettit responded at 3:50 a.m. Monday to the beach bar in the 2600 block of the Boardwalk for an activated burglar alarm and found a broken window.

Personnel at the police surveillance center found footage of the suspect entering and exiting the business, as well as surveillance footage from the business showing the suspect, the release said.

Police identified the suspect as Snead, who police say fled the bar with $500 worth of liquor. After the officers completed the initial investigation at 4:42 a.m., they found and arrested Snead at Iowa and Pacific avenues.

Police believe the food in Snead’s backpack was also stolen but have not determined from where, the release said.

Snead was charged with burglary, theft, criminal mischief, hindering apprehension and possession of burglary tools. He was taken to the Atlantic County jail.
