MAHOPAC, N.Y. -- Three people in hooded sweatshirts stole a Daily Voice DVlicious banner in the darkness of night on Saturday. But images of the bandits and their van were captured on video and security cameras, according to the owners of Frankie's Waffles N Burgers.

Co-owner Carina Evangelista said Monday that a complaint was filed with Mahopac police which is investigating the theft of a banner valued at $195.

"I was a horrible thing. I hope they get these guys. It's just cruel,'' Evangelista said.

In February, the popular eatery at 565 Route 6 was named the best place to eat soup in Putnam County as reported here by Daily Voice.

The video shows one suspect acting as a lookout as two others in hoodies rip the banner down and crumble it up before throwing it into a van, according to Evangelista.
