Help Us Identify This Person That Burglarized a Local Small Business 

In the morning hours of July 19, 2013, a burglary occurred at Top A Lot Yogurt, 738 Water Street.  The suspect used two large rocks to smash a glass front door and make entry into the store.  Once inside, the suspect took a bank bag containing cash. 

The images below were captured from the video surveillance system in the store.

The Santa Cruz Police Department is requesting the public’s help in identifying the suspect.  The images are grainy, but they may depict a person known to someone in the community.   We are betting someone will be able to provide a clue or missing link to identify this person.  

The suspect appears to be a white male with short dark hair.  The suspect is wearing a light colored zip front hoodie with a logo on the back and dark pants.

C'mon Santa Cruz, you have had a pretty good track record with this lately.....let's keep the streak alive!!
