Police are looking for a burglar who forced his way into a home office at 5 East 17th Street.
According to the victim, he’d left the building at 9:30 a.m. on May 15 and returned at 8:30 a.m. the following day to find his office ransacked.
Additionally, his bag was stolen, as were some shirts, a drill and even paper towels with a combined worth of $350.
Police said the door appeared to be forced open at the locked room in the building, which is also home to the Union Fare restaurant.
The suspect was captured in fuzzy surveillance footage that shows a light-skinned man with facial hair wearing a hat.
