PHILADELPHIA -

Northwest Detectives Division is asking for the public's help to identify the suspect who took more than $500 from a residence in Logan. Surveillance video obtained by police shows the whole incident unfold.

On February 24, 2014, at 3:30am, according to police, an unknown male was captured on surveillance video inside a residence, which is under renovation, on the 4500 block of Uber Street.

Police say that he gained entry through a rear kitchen window. While inside, the suspect took a garbage disposal and two surveillance video cameras valued at $500. However, he forgot to take the tapes, because his face is now clearly recorded and documented.

Here's the suspect description, according to police and surveillance: Black male, late teens to early 20 years-of-age, light mustache and thin build. He was wearing a camouflage knit hat, black zip-up jacket, and dark colored torn jeans during the time of the burglary.

If you see this suspect, do not approach him; instead, contact 911 immediately. To submit a tip via telephone, dial 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.

    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.
