PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are looking for the man who burglarized a pair of businesses in South Philadelphia, and they say he's gotten inside of the buildings in some unusual ways.

The first crime happened at a Cricket Wireless on the 14 hundred block of Snyder Avenue back on May 12th. Police say the man broke in through a basement window just before noon. He was looking for cell phones and cash, but didn't find anything, so he ran off.

Then the next day, they say he broke into Flying Fish Seafood on South 9th Street. This time, police say he climbed a wall to get in through a second floor window. He managed to force the cash register open, then took money and ran off. Police are asking anyone with information to call them.
