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.

Residents may contact the Northwest Detective Division at 215-686-3353/3354 with any information. And people may always submit a tip by calling 215-686-TIPS (8477), or texting PPD TIP or 773847.
