By Dan Wing

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia police are on the hunt for a man who broke into a dentist’s office in the Pennsport section of the city over the weekend.

Police say the thief made his way into the office, in the 1700 block of East Moyamensing Avenue, through a side window, about 3am Sunday.

Once inside, he spent the next two hours searching through the dentist’s office, going through drawers and cabinets.

In the end, police say, he made off with checks, computers, a credit card reader, and mail.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned black or Hispanic man between 20 and 30 years old, with a heavy build.

In surveillance video, the suspect is seen wearing a long-sleeve shirt and a goatee, and he has a tattoo on the back of his neck.
