A man with a leg brace is wanted for at least two commercial burglaries in the city. On Sunday, December 31, 2017 at approximately 8:30 am, a burglary was reported at the Valley Youth House, located at 1500 Sansom Street. Video of the incident was recovered and shows the suspect, an unknown African American male, approximately 5’09” to 6′ in height, heavy build, with a gray long beard, wearing a dark colored foot brace “boot” on his right leg, walking with a cane. This male is also suspected in committing an additional burglary at 1701 Walnut Street on January 27, 2018.

The male also walks with a cane,which should make it easy to spot him. He may be homeless and camp out in the center city area. Both locations are close to each other.  Go here to view a video of this male.  He  is a heavy set black male with a  long grey beard.
