OGDENSBURG, N.Y. (WWNY) - State police are asking the public to help them nab a burglar who struck the same place twice over two nights.

Investigators say the break-ins were at the Blevins Brothers auto dealership on State Route 68 just outside Ogdensburg.

In both cases, the burglar jimmied open a door and made off with cash. Police are not revealing how much.

Above is a surveillance photo showing the burglar inside the business.

Troopers say they believe he was on foot and they wonder if someone may have picked him up as a hitchhiker.

The burglaries were in the overnight and early morning hours of December 17 and 19.

Anyone with information -- particularly anyone who may have seen the person on foot -- is asked to call state police at 518-873-2776.
