Philly Police put out an APB moments ago about a restaurant break-in last month:

On December 7, 2011, at 4:21am, an unknown Male approached the Mexico on the Square located at 1511 Pine Street and kicked the front door breaking the glass. The suspect entered the business by going through the lower portion of the entrance door and proceeded to the register and attempt to open the register. The suspect then grabbed the register and slammed it on the floor several times causing the register to open and removed approximately $50 in cash. The suspect exited the business and fled on foot.

Suspect description:
