PRATTVILLE — Police in Prattville are looking for a safe breaking thief.
Sometime around midnight Friday a man forced his way into the International House of Pancakes in the 2700 block of Legends Parkway, said Capt. Jeff Hassell, who commands the PPD investigations division. He went into an office and cut into a safe using power tools, Hassell said.
Shortly after midnight police and fire units went to the restaurant on a fire alarm call, with the indication being smoke in an interior office. Hassell believes the “smoke” was actually dust kicked up in the safe breaking effort.
No one was in the building when units arrived. The thief made off with $620 in cash, Hassell said. Surveillance footage shows the suspect to be a heavy-set man, wearing a mask.
If you have any information about the suspect or where he is, please immediately call the Police or CrimeStoppers at 215- 7867.
