Police seek man suspected of breaking into 3 Milford food shops

Police are looking for help identifying a man sought in the burglary of a Milford restaurant, and who may possibly have committed similar crimes at two other Milford eateries.

On Oct. 14, at approximately 6:50 a.m., a burglary occurred at Mac-N-Out Restaurant, 902 Boston Post Rd.

The suspect forced open the rear door of the restaurant with a crowbar, then attempted to break open the office safe but was unsuccessful, police said.

The man stole two register drawers.

The suspect was a white or Hispanic male, wearing dark colored sweat pants, dark hooded sweatshirt, a red and black baseball style hat, dark color sneakers and a pair of gloves.

The suspect drove a gray or light colored vehicle, possibly a Buick Regal, 2011 body style.

The suspect is a person of interest in two burglaries that occurred one day earlier at Dairy Queen and Emerald Bakery. Both are located at 1365 New Haven Avenue, Milford and occurred in the same manner as this one, police said.

If anyone has information that could help identify the suspect they are asked to contact the Milford Police Department at 203-878-6551, Detective Tyrone Dancy at 203-783-4798,  email at tdancy@ci.milford.ct.us or visit milfordpd.org and click “Crime Tips.” Reference case #5811-16.
