Video footage that police released Thursday afternoon shows a man wanted for recently breaking into and stealing cash from a Glendale apartment.

Authorities said the burglary occurred at 2 p.m. on Aug. 1 at a basement apartment on 60th Lane in the vicinity of Cooper Avenue.

Reportedly, the suspect forced his way into a door leading to the apartment, then left briefly to stop at a deli located at 60-49 Cooper Ave., where he was filmed on security camera.

Following his visit to the deli, police said, the crook returned to the 60th Lane apartment and removed $1,300 in cash before fleeing. The tenant later reported the theft to the 104th Precinct.

Anyone with information regarding the break-in or the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages will be kept confidential.
