Philadelphia Police are looking for the suspect who has been responsible for multiple burglaries around Philadelphia.

According to police, the suspect is a black male around 40 years of age. He has a thin build. On two occasions he was wearing a dark-colored knit hat and a dark colored jacket. Watch the attached surveillance video for more description on the suspect.

The first incident happened on October 2nd, at around 4:00 p.m. at the Pac-A-Deli on at 1200 Walnut Street, according to police. Surveillance shows the suspect smashing the front glass door and then grabbing the cash register. The second incident happened on December 1st, at around 2:47 a.m. at the Palm Tree Gourmet, located on the 1900 block of Pine Street. Again, surveillance shows the suspect breaking the glass of the front door and then taking about $200 in cash from the cash register.

Finally, the suspect struck again four days ago, according to authorities. This time, at 4:10 a.m. on December 8th, the suspect took cash from Gavin's Café on the 2500 block of Pine Street, say investigators. Again, the suspect gained entry by smashing some glass, this time a window.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
