In turned out to be a cold case, police were searching Monday for a man who broke into Melt Ice Creams on Magnolia Avenue early Sunday and took an undisclosed amount of money, along with equipment.
Melt Ice Creams posted a photo and video of the burglar on the company’s Facebook page in hopes of identifying him. The photos and video came from a store surveillance camera.
“We were hoping when the alarm company called us at 3:30 a.m. he might have some late night cravings for our Whiskey Breakfast knowing it is in limited supply,” the Facebook post said. “Unfortunately he was just after cash.”
“Please help us in sharing his picture so we can bring justice to the #icecreamhater,” the post asks friends and followers.
Police arrived at 4 a.m. at the store at 1201 Magnolia Ave., and no suspect was in sight. The burglary did not affect the store’s operating hours.
