STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Stamford Police is asking the public for assistance in identifying a suspect in two burglaries committed on Summer Street between 2 and 3 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 15, police said.
A male was captured on a surveillance video breaking and entering the Summer Corner Variety store through the back door and minutes later through the rear of Planet Pizza, both on Summer Street, according to police.
He enters Planet Pizza twice, the video shows. The first time, he is unable to open the cash register. The second time, he rips the cash register from its cords and carries it out of the back door of the pizza joint, the video shows.
