RICHLANDS -

The Richlands Police Department is searching for a man who broke into a break in at a local restaurant.  They are asking for help from the community to identify the suspect.

The man was captured on surveillance video breaking into the Roma's Italian Restaurant located at 385 Front Street in Richlands. The break-in occurred around 11:17 p.m. on Aug. 4.

Officers said the suspect used what appears to be a cinder block to smash out a glass door.  After getting inside the person took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register.

The suspect is described as a white male, between 5-feet 8-inches and 6-feet tall.  He was wearing a ski mask, ski type coat, woodland camouflage pants, and dark tennis shoes.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Investigator Paul M. Little 276-964-9134.
