PHILADELPHIA -

Police in Philadelphia are looking for a man captured by a surveillance camera prying the door of a building open with a screwdriver and then stealing assorted power tools.

The burglary happened in University City on the 3800 block of Chestnut Street on January 26 around 5:30 a.m.

Police say the man is seen on surveillance video using a large screwdriver to pry open a door. The video shows the man walk in and then come out with power tools. The man would then take the power tools and place them into a parked car, police said.

Surveillance cameras capture the man entering the building several times to take more items.

Police describe the suspect as a black man, 6'0" to 6'2" tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a dark jacket with distinctive patches on the left upper arm and sleeve, a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.

Police say the man placed the items into a silver Volvo XC90.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
