Video of NoLibs and Fishtown crimes now available

Po­lice have re­leased video of re­cent neigh­bor­hood rob­ber­ies in hopes the pub­lic can help identi­fy the crim­in­als.

A man who told a clerk he had a gun made off with $300 from the Fam­ily Dol­lar Store at 180 W. Gir­ard Ave. in late Janu­ary, po­lice said.

The rob­ber came in­to the store at 8:02 a.m. on Jan. 26, po­lice said, and walked be­hind a counter. He then told 22-year-old clerk he had a gun and pro­ceeded to take money from two cash re­gisters.

Po­lice said the man is a black and has a dark com­plex­ion. He has a black and gray beard and ap­peared to be 40 to 50 years old. He wore a black knit hat, a black hooded jack­et with tan fur around the hood, blue jeans with bleach spots and tan boots.

To view sur­veil­lance video of the rob­bery, vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice You­Tube Chan­nel or go to ht­tp://philly­po­ Any­one who sees the rob­ber should call 911, po­lice said. 

A burg­lar also hit the 5-Hour En­ergy Ware­house in Fishtown early Feb. 2, but stole only some keys and a met­al hand truck.

Po­lice said they now have sur­veil­lance video of a man en­ter­ing the ware­house at 2424 E. York St. at about 4:34 a.m.

The man is white or His­pan­ic, po­lice said, and six feet tall and of a stocky build. He was wear­ing a white hooded sweat shirt, dark work pants and dark work boots. Po­lice are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help in identi­fy­ing the man.

The video can also be viewed on the Phil­adelphia Po­lice You­Tube Chan­nel or by vis­it­ing ht­tp://philly­po­

Any­one who spots this man should not ap­proach him, but call 911, po­lice said.
