UPDATE: We received a rather strongly worded email from Bova management stating that the wallet was found under a table in the restaurant. This information was apparently not reported to Boca Raton Police before the agency released the theft report to us.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If you’re eating out in Boca, you may want to think twice before leaving your valuables at your table while you walk away — even for a moment. In the latest example of why, Boca police report that a woman says she was victimized at Vivo Restaurant at 1450 North Federal Highway. The woman says her $50 small black purse was stolen from her pocketbook while she ate at Vivo in addition to several credit cards, $100 cash her drivers license, and a checkbook.
Vivo was formerly known as “Bova,” and owned in part by convicted ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein.
