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.
