Haledon police turned to the public for help finding a burglar who stole $6,000 worth of cigarettes and more than $250 in cash after smashing the front door of a local convenience store with a rock.

A bread delivery driver discovered the broken door and glass strewn on the floor of the 777 Food Store on Belmont Avenue shortly before 4:30 a.m. Nov. 16, Lt. George Guzman said.

Responding officers checked the area, then summoned the owner to the store.

He found 70 or so cartons of Newport and Maverick cigarettes and the cash taken from behind the counter, Guzman said.

Damage to the door's glass and aluminum was valued at nearly $1,000, the lieutenant said.

Police on Monday distributed images taken from surveillance video in an attempt to identify the burglar.
