The suspect was described as being a black male, between the ages of 20 and 30, about 5-feet-4 inches tall, with a stocky build and a medium complexion. He was wearing a dark knit hat, a red, hooded sweatshirt with black sleeves and "Nike" in black on the upper left chest, and black and white sneakers.

Police say he's "responsible for multiple burglaries." If you see him, do not approach him. Call 911 immediately. To submit a tip, call (215) 686-TIPS or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.
