A masked burglar stuck a Fairgrounds auto repair shop on Thursday night.

Officers are searching for a suspect who allegedly stole cash from the Speedee Oil Change, located in the 2600 block of Esplanade Avenue.

New Orleans police say the incident happened around 10 p.m. Thursday as the suspect broke into the office of the business. Police say the suspect stole cash for the front desk and fled on foot.

The suspect was caught on surveillance video wearing all black. He wore latex gloves and, what appears to be, a gas mask.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
