Breach investigated at northern New England cafes


BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) -- A northern New England cafe chain is working with authorities in an investigation of a possible data breach involving the theft of customers' debit and credit card information.

The Brattleboro Savings & Loan warns on its website that it's seen a sharp increase in fraudulent debit card transactions and believes there's been a breach at The Works Bakery Cafe. The bank says accounts may be compromised if customers have used debit cards at any of The Works' locations.

According to its website, The Works is based in Keene, N.H., and has eateries in Brattleboro and Manchester, Vt.; Keene, Portsmouth, Durham and Concord, N.H.; and Portland, Maine.

Company President Richard French told the Brattleboro Reformer ( ) that it's cooperating with authorities in an investigation.
