IRWIN, Pa. - Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man wanted in connection with several burglaries in Westmoreland County.
According to police, the burglar apparently changed his shirt before he broke a window to enter K-Vay's Restaurant in Irwin
around 1 a.m. Saturday.
“While he was in the restaurant, he stole from both of the cash registers, and he also chose to grab a bottle of Crown Royal prior to exiting the restaurant,” Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Steve Limani said.
The thief fled on foot on Mars Hill Road.
Limani 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, Limani said.
“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 stands about 6 feet tall and has a shaved head, except for “a small patch of dark hair” in the front. He has a tattoo sleeve on his left forearm, police said.
Anyone with information can call police at 724-832-3288.
