Keith Taylor, owner of on Markley Street, sees all walks of life in his popular eatery on a daily basis. Today he saw a thief.
At approximately 10:51 a.m this morning, minutes before the restaurant opens and while Taylor and his staff were preparing in the back of the store, a hispanic or bi-racial-looking male with dark hair in the style of a bald fade afro wearing a light blue hoodie and grey pants walked in, stole Taylor's laptop off of the front counter and took off running north through the parking lot towards .
The suspect was caught on surveillance camera entering Zachary's BBQ and leaving in under a minute with the laptop under his arm. He returned an hour later and was caught on camera in the convenience store next door. (See the video in our media section.) Taylor has filed a report with the , but more important to Taylor than catching the perp is having his laptop returned.
Taylor is asking anyone with information about his computer to contact him at his shop. He's hoping that spreading word about the theft over Norristown Patch, Facebook and Twitter, he'll be able to reach someone who may be able to return his computer. He's also offering a reward for its return, no questions asked.
"Just leave it at the front door," said Taylor. "or even at the back. I just need it back."
Anyone with information about the suspect pictured above should contact the Norristown Police Department at 610-270-0977 with the information.
