Police said Mantas Lukosevicius, 17, entered the Bagel Cafe, at 248 Smithtown Blvd., through a side door at about 12:30 a.m. May 27. He then forced open an office door and stole a "large amount of cash," police said.

As a part-time employee of the store, Lukosevicius "was familiar with the location of the secured cash," police said in a news release.
