Detroit police on Friday released surveillance photos of a suspect wanted in a break-in reported last month at an east side restaurant.

The suspect was captured on camera during the break-in.

The man broke a lock off the front door at the business in the 5800 block of Mt. Elliott around 4 a.m. Sept. 19 to enter, authorities said.

Once inside, he tossed a fire extinguisher to shatter an office window then stole cash and a handgun, according to the release.
