HOLMESBURG (WTXF) - Philadelphia Police are looking for a man they say was caught on camera breaking into a laundromat not once, but twice. They are seeking the public's assistance in identifying the suspect.
Friday at 6:30 a.m., surveillance video from Pristine Laundromat at 88th and Frankford Avenue showed the man getting out of a car and breaking the laundromat’s front entrance door glass.
Once inside, police say the man tried to take the cash register drawer but can’t, so he leaves.
But then he returns, goes back inside, and again comes out empty-handed.
He and the driver get away, last seen heading north on Frankford Avenue towards Academy Road.
The suspect is described as about 30 years old, with a stocky build, brown hair, and beard. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants.
The car is described as a black late 1980s Cadillac Deville.
