PHILADELPHIA -

Northwest Detectives Division is asking for the public's help to identify the suspect who took more than $500 from a residence in Logan. Surveillance video obtained by police shows the whole incident unfold.

On February 24, 2014, at 3:30am, according to police, an unknown male was captured on surveillance video inside a residence, which is under renovation, on the 4500 block of Uber Street.

Police say that he gained entry through a rear kitchen window. While inside, the suspect took a garbage disposal and two surveillance video cameras valued at $500. However, he forgot to take the tapes, because his face is now clearly recorded and documented.

Here's the suspect description, according to police and surveillance: Black male, late teens to early 20 years-of-age, light mustache and thin build. He was wearing a camouflage knit hat, black zip-up jacket, and dark colored torn jeans during the time of the burglary.

If you see this suspect, do not approach him; instead, contact 911 immediately. To submit a tip via telephone, dial 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.
