PHILADELPHIA -

Some crooks will do just about anything for stuff that doesn't belong to them.

This guy? He chisels a hole in the side of Progressive Food Market in Germantown and goes for the goods.

The burglar has been caught on camera not once but twice busting through a hole in the wall to steal from the local market.

Can you help find the guy who managed to sneak and slip out?

Surveillance video shows a bold criminal in action. Some may call his method of mischief creative. But police say it's a calling card.

It's happened twice since October. The video footage shows him trying to get out the way he came in, a hole he made in the side of the building.

You can see the wooden stakes he peeled away on the outside just to get through.

Store video also shows him cruising the aisles. Police say both times he went after some smokes and cash from the register.

The burglary suspect is described as a black male, medium build, medium complexion, late 20s to 30 years of age, light beard, wearing a black ski cap, dark colored hooded jacket with a white logo and wings on back, and a dark colored backpack style bag.

If you see this suspect do not approach him, contact 911 immediately.

Police hope this video helps prevent a third break-in.  In the meantime staff at Progressive Food Market have fixed the holes – and even reinforced the walls for good measure.

FOX 29's Dave Kinchen talked to the rattled shop workers and has more details in this video report.
