Sur­veil­lance photo

A burg­lar broke through a fence, a wall and a win­dow, but he couldn’t crack open an ATM ma­chine in the of­fice of a Wissi­nom­ing auto re­pair shop on April 6, so he fled with noth­ing.

The crime oc­curred at about 12:18 a.m. at Ab­reu Auto Ser­vice, 6301 Key­stone St., when the un­known crook bus­ted through the peri­met­er fence, ex­ter­i­or wall and of­fice win­dow, just to reach the ATM. He failed that fi­nal chal­lenge.

He was de­scribed as white with a hooded sweat­shirt, cam­ou­flage pants, mask, black boots and gloves. Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­ to view sur­veil­lance video. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP. ••
