Police are searching for the thief wanted in connection with the burglary of a Ridgewood bubble tea shop last month.

Authorities say that the suspect — a man with a light complexion and medium build with dark gray hair — threw a brick through the glass front door of Mr. Wish, located at 66-27 Fresh Pond Road within the 104th Precinct, just after 6 a.m. on June 28. Once inside, the crook nabbed $400 in cash from the register before fleeing the location on foot.

Surveillance video released by the NYPD shows the man picking up the brick and tossing it through the front door.

The suspect was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and white sneakers.
