Go figure that a video game store would have a video surveillance system in place.

A suspect wanted in connection with the armed robbery of a GameStop store in Shirley last week was recorded on camera -- leaving Suffolk County police investigators with some pretty good pictures of himself.

Police are asking anyone with information about the suspect -- or the robbery at the store on Montauk Highway on Oct. 2 -- to call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.

Callers are eligible for a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest.

Police said the man, wearing a Brooklyn Brawlers T-shirt and carrying a backpack, entered the store, displayed a gun and demanded cash. He then fled the scene, but not before being captured on video.
