A thief didn’t have to break in­to the cash room at the Frank­lin Mills Wal­mart to get at the store’s money on Aug. 3. He had the key.

Non­ethe­less, the uniden­ti­fied crook is wanted for burg­lary in con­nec­tion with the brazen heist, which in­volved cash from a safe and ad­di­tion­al bank bags, po­lice said.

The crime oc­curred on Aug. 3 at about 9 p.m. when a man walked to a private area of the store, used a key to un­lock the cash room, raided the safe and grabbed nu­mer­ous oth­er money bags from the shelves. Au­thor­it­ies did not dis­close the amount of cash taken. The burg­lar, who used a scarf to cov­er his head and ob­scure his face from se­cur­ity cam­er­as, stuffed the money in­to a back­pack and fled through sev­er­al hall­ways, a stair­well and a side exit.

He was de­scribed as black, 20 years old, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a me­di­um build and a me­di­um com­plex­ion, wear­ing a head scarf, dark blue shirt, tan pants and black sneak­ers. He had a black back­pack with an Eagles logo on it. Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­ to view the sur­veil­lance video.
