Police Searching for Friday Zesto Pizza Burglar
Surveillance video released from Ridge Avenue robbery.
Philadelphia Police from the Northwest Detective Division released surveillance video of late-night burglary from a Roxborough pizza shop earlier this month.
Zesto Pizza Store at 6024 Ridge Ave. was broken into Sept. 7 at 2:40 a.m. by a man who entered by forcing open a rear window. Police said he took a cash drawer, containing an unknown amount of money, and fled in an unknown direction.
Police released the attached video and description of the burglar: a white male, 5-foot-8-inch to 6 foot, with a thin build, wearing a dark baseball cap, T-shirt, and plaid shorts. He potentially had a tattoo on his right forearm.
The video depicts the man walking through the parking lot behind the shopping plaza, carrying a window pain and cash box.
If anyone finds the man, police say to contact 911 immediately and not approach him.
