The NYPD is searching for a man who broke into a popular Brooklyn pizza joint last week, authorities said.
The burglar used a crowbar to break into the Michelin-starred Roerta’s Pizzeria at 261 Moore Street in Bushwick around 4am on July 30, police said.
Cops said he tried to open the register but couldn’t steal anything. According to the police, he damaged the restaurant doors during the break-in.
The suspect – a bald man wearing a gray shirt and gold necklace carrying a black backpack – was caught by security camera peering through the pizzeria’s windows before attempting to pry open the front door with his hands, like an NYPD official published video shows.
In another photo released by police, the man is wearing a Yankees hat.
Roberta’s, which opened in 2008, has served celebrities and politicians including Bill and Hillary Clinton and R&B star Beyonce.
In 2016, employees at the pizzeria received death threats after rumors circulated online linking the restaurant to the Pizzagate conspiracy theory about a child molestation ring headed by Hillary Clinton.
