Burglar smashes restaurant window with rock, covers face after discovering he is on camera

STATEN ISLAND (WABC) -- Police say a man caught on video has committed at least 3 burglaries in one Staten Island business complex - the most recent on Sunday morning.

The man scopes out a fast food restaurant on Richmond Avenue. When the coast is clear, he smashes the front door with a large rock. He clearly did not realize that the cameras could capture his face outside of the restaurant, because after handling the broken glass, he covers his face with a rag.

The suspect smashed the register and then made off with some cash.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the NYPD.
