Cops are looking for a suspect who they say broke into a Laurelton store and stole $2,600.

A man stole $2,600 from a Laurelton store last weekend by breaking in through the roof, police said.

The burglary took place about 4:45 a.m., after the business, 99 Cent Dream Store at 229-12 Merrick Blvd., was closed, cops said.

After cutting a hole in the store’s roof, the burglar took the cash and fled, according to officials.

Police described the suspect as a black man with a light complexion and 25 to 30 years old. He was last seen wearing a light-colored sweatshirt, light-colored camouflage pants, light sneakers, and was carrying a book bag.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
