Police released on Thursday video footage of a man wanted for grabbing cash and cigarettes from an Astoria grocery store during a recent burglary.

Authorities said the break-in occurred at about 5:50 a.m. on Aug. 16 at the iKraveIt food store located at 34-02 30th St.

The business was closed when the suspect, whom police described as a male wearing a hooded sweatshirt, gloves, pants, a hat and sneakers while carrying a backpack, entered through the front door.

Once inside, the crook removed $250 from the cash register as well as nine packs of cigarettes kept from behind the counter, police said. After taking the loot, he fled in an unknown direction.

Workers at the store later reported the break-in to the 114th Precinct. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding 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 are kept confidential.
