BPD Looking for Smash and Grab Suspect


Buffalo police are releasing surveillance photos in connection with a series of smash and grab incidents at the Mobile on the Run store located in the 500 block of Elmwood Avenue.

Police say possibly one individual may've hit the same store 3-4 times since mid February.

Detectives say an individual throws a brick or a rock threw a store window, enters after hours and in most cases makes off with cigarettes.

The person of interest is described as a white or Hispanic male, possibly late 20's-to-early 30's with a beard.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call or text the Confidential TIPCALL Line at (716)847-2255.
