As reported yesterday, police are searching for a suspect in the robbery of the Stop 1 Deli at 265 Cherry St., near Rutgers Street. A burglar broke in through the ceiling March 3 after the business closed and made off with $25,000. Today the 7th Precinct has put out a “wanted” poster for the suspect.
Cops believe the burglar is also responsible for at least three other robberies on the Lower East Side. Although he’s done a pretty good job concealing his face, they have released a few descriptive details. Based on security camera footage, investigators say he’s about 5 feet tall and has brown eyes.
