Police seek help to identify Rillton restaurant burglar

State police are seeking help to identify a fashion-conscious burglar who apparently changed his shirt before he broke a window to enter K-Vay's Restaurant in Rillton and steal cash and a bottle of whiskey Saturday.

Trooper Steve Limani, spokesman for Troop A in Greensburg, said the burglar, a white male in his late 20s or early 30s, is shown on surveillance cameras “casing the exterior” of the restaurant.

He was wearing a short-sleeved white shirt, blue jeans and slip-on black dress shoes, but was filmed inside wearing a blue golf shirt with white print on the shoulders. The burglary occurred at 1:16 a.m.

“It's very rare that anyone would bother to change his shirt during a burglary,” Limani said. “We're hoping someone may be able to give us some information that leads us to make an arrest.”

The man is approximately 6 feet tall. He has a shaved head, except for “a small patch of dark hair” in the front, and has a tattoo sleeve on his left forearm, police said.

The man entered the restaurant by breaking the window with a rock.

He forced open two cash registers and grabbed a bottle of Crown Royal whiskey before fleeing on foot on Mars Hill Road.

Anyone with information can call police at 724-832-3288.
