SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Sylvester Police are asking for help to catch a burglar they say broke into the same store twice.

Investigators say a suspect smashed the drive through window of the Pizza Quick on East Franklin Street around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, then crawled inside and took an undetermined amount of cash.

Officers say thieves broke into the store about a week earlier, using the same methods.

"We're putting all the information together and evidence we found at the scene," said Sgt. Kenneth Washington, Sylvester Police Department. "And this time we got more evidence than we did the last time and hopefully we'll be able to catch this bandit."

Washington said footprints and fingerprints were collected from the scene. He said officers don't yet have a description of the suspect.

Anyone with information that could lead to an arrest is asked to call the Sylvester Police Department, or CrimeSTOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS.
