Police are offering a reward for information regarding the whereabouts of a man who burglarized a diner in Long Island City last month.

At 8:10 a.m. on April 26, law enforcement sources said, an unknown man broke into Dorian Cafe, located at 10-01 50th Ave. According to authorities, the perpetrator was able to unlawfully gain access to the building through the neighboring Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue subway station; it’s unclear, however, exactly how he used the station’s facilities to do so.

Once inside, police said, the suspect took tools from the building valued at $200, then fled the location.

On May 16, the 108th Precinct tweeted out this wanted poster with photos of the suspect:

Anyone with information about the burglary is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS. All calls are kept confidential.
