He must have thought it was his lucky day.
After all, the school was unlocked, even though it was closed at the time, welcoming him to have free run of the place.
And so he did, and stumbled across $125, which he pocketed before going on his way.
Happy day, except he was caught on video entering the school building.
Police are hunting for a white male, between 17 and 22 years old, last seen wearing a black t-shirt with red and blue writing on it and blue jeans.
The suspect entered St. Columba School (2245 Kimball Street) in Marine Park on September 25. He entered through an open door at 6:30 p.m., hours after the school had closed for the day. It’s not clear why the door was open.
He then rummaged through the building, and stumbled across a cabinet that held the $125.
Police have released the photo above, taken from the surveillance video that captured the thief’s entry.
If you recognize the man above or have any more information regardng this incident, please contact (800) 577-TIPS (8477) or visit NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM.
