The burglary happened at 6:25 a.m. Tuesday at the Kids are Fit Day Care at 6110 Germantown Avenue.
The video shows the entire crime in progress, starting with the man's approach to the building.
He tries to open the door but, apparently finding it locked, walks away.
The video then cuts to his second approach and, this time, he pushes on the door until he breaks through.
Once inside, another camera shows the man looking around before he goes to a computer and pulls it off a desk.
He then places the Acer all-in-one touch screen desktop in his shoulder bag.
Cameras then show him then leaving through the front door.
The suspect is described as black male in his late teens to early twenties. He has a medium complexion with a beard, mustache and sideburns. He also has tattoos on his face, neck and the back of his hands. He was wearing a maroon hooded sweatshirt with white draw strings, gray cargo pants, bright red sneakers and carrying a tan shoulder bag.
