Kmart burglar sought

Phil­adelphia po­lice are try­ing to identi­fy a sneaky burg­lar who slipped in­to a North­wood Kmart store dur­ing nor­mal busi­ness hours and hid un­til after clos­ing time, when he made off with mer­chand­ise worth about $10,000.

The burg­lar wasn’t savvy enough to avoid the lens of a sur­veil­lance cam­era, however. A video re­leased by po­lice on Sunday shows a clear pic­ture of his face.

He is de­scribed as black, 5-feet-11 and about 30 years of age. He had a goat­ee and wore a dark shirt with white ho­ri­zont­al stripes, along with dark pants.

The heist oc­curred Fri­day at about 12:30 a.m. at the Kmart at 900 Or­tho­dox St. After hid­ing out in the store un­til after clos­ing time, the man dis­abled an alarm, po­lice said.

He took game sys­tems, laptop com­puters and TVs, and fled in an un­known dir­ec­tion.
