An ice cream shop on Bienville Boulevard was burglarized Friday morning, and police are asking for help to identify the burglar.
Police Capt. William Jackson said officers responded about 6:15 a.m. to Quakes Ice Creamery, a locally owned shop that serves frozen yogurt, shaved ice and other treats.
The burglar unsuccessfully tried to get in through the drive-up window but was able to force open the front door. Once inside, the burglar was able to open the register and take an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.
A detective reviewed the store’s surveillance system and retrieved still photos of the person who broke in, Jackson said.
