But he must have been disappointed when he found out what was in it. Police say the register was empty.
The suspect was caught on surveillance video climbing through a window at the Tulip Salon and Spa on Lexington Avenue, early Monday morning.
He grabbed the register and made off with it.
The suspect is described as a light skinned male wearing a hooded sweatshirt dark pants and a cornrows hair style.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
