Madison Heights police are seeking a suspect they believe is behind two burglaries of Detroit Donuts.
In both incidents reported early Jan. 29 and Wednesday, the suspect entered the store in the 29000 block of Stephenson Highway after pounding out the laminate glass and going through an opening, police said.
Once inside, “the suspect goes directly to the counter area and fills a plastic shopping bag with cigarettes and then leaves,” police said in a release. “Only Marlboro and Newport cigarettes were stolen; nothing else was checked or taken by the suspect.”
Both incidents were captured on video. A minivan or similar vehicle was seen in the most recent footage. It appeared to have entered the store lot from eastbound 12 Mile, police said.
The suspect is described as a man with an average height and build. He was last seen wearing gloves; a black mask or hat covering his face; an oversized, dark blue nylon jacket over a gray hooded sweatshirt; and light, baggy blue jeans.
