Ocean Springs police are trying to identify this person in connection with the burglary of Quakes Ice Creamery on Friday, Dec. 16, 2016.

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.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Ocean Springs Police Department at 228-875-2211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
