Police are looking for a man who broke into a Frankford towing business twice earlier this month and stole a tool box, computer and TV.

During the first incident, the man gained access to Shaw’s Towing, 4750 James St., at around 11:15 p.m. Jan. 8, and took a tool box and small computer, authorities said. Then, on Jan. 10 at 5:15 p.m., the suspect again broke into the building and stole a 32-inch TV, according to police.

In both burglaries, the suspect, a white man, forced open a window and entered an office area, police said. Both times, he was seen heading toward the railroad tracks nearby with the stolen items.

Anyone with information about the burglaries or the suspect is asked to contact Northeast Detectives at 215-686-3153/3154. Tipsters can remain anonymous. ••
