Police seek suspect in drive-through thefts
Suffolk County police detectives are looking for a man who broke into drive-through grocery stores in North Babylon and Lake Ronkonkoma on several occasions last month, stealing cigarettes and other items.
The man illegally entered, or tried to enter, The Barn locations between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. and stole numerous packs of cigarettes from storage cabinets, then put the items into a black knapsack decorated with a peace sign and a pink heart, police said.
Surveillance cameras show the suspect is a tall, thin male with a mustache and glasses, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans with a black belt and tan-colored construction boots, police said.
Anyone with information on the break-ins is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
