Before dawn on April 5, at 4:50 a.m., a burglar breaks through the front door of the 102nd Street Market at 4646 NE 102nd Ave.
Surveillance video at the store catches this guy as he enters the store and starts loading his brown-and-black Adidas duffle bag with cigarettes, candy, and money from the store’s till.
Then, on Sunday, April 8, at 2:35 a.m., the same suspect breaks into Subway restaurant at 10643 Northeast Sandy Blvd. During this break-in, the crook can’t defeat the lock on the cash box‚ so, he opted to take the entire box with him.
You can’t see him as well, but here’s the crook in the Subway store.
The suspect on the video looks to be a white male, possibly late 20’s to early 30’s, 5’6″ or shorter, with dark brown or black hair, and bushy dark eyebrows.
His clothing: A light colored sweatshirt with the hood up, underneath a short sleeve dark shirt or jacket, dark pants, and white shoes. The dark colored shirt was pulled over the lower part of his face, and he appeared to be wearing light-colored gloves.
Bust the crook for cold cash
