Police are searching for a man who broke into a house in Graduate Hospital and ran away with about $56,000 worth of jewelry, electronics and antiques.

 

On Aug. 18, a man was recorded on a surveillance camera shortly before the robbery at about 11 p.m.

 

The burglar approached a house on Kater Street near 22nd and removed the mail slot cover from the front door, police said. He then reached through the gap, unlocked the door and let himself inside the house. 

 

Police released surveillance footage of the alleged burglar and are asking for the public's help in identifying the man. 

 

Tipsters are asked to call the tip line at 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPDTIP (773847).
