UNITY TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A determined burglar was caught on tape trying to break in to a Westmoreland County pizza shop.

Police say the suspect tried to get into Red’s Pizza and Six Pack Shop in Unity just after midnight on Thursday. He may have spent more than a half an hour trying to pry open various doors.

Surveillance video at the business shows the suspect using a large tool to try and pry open the front door. He then leaves for a moment before returning with another tool and continuing his efforts.

The owner believes the suspect tried to enter through four doors in all. One door that the suspect got open is now boarded up. The suspect wasn’t able to gain entry because there was machinery on the other side. He also appeared to have tampered with a cooler in the rear of the building and another door on the far side. The burglar never did get in, but owners estimate he caused around $500 in damage.

If you have any information on the suspect’s identity, you should contact state police in Greensburg.
