RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond police are searching for a suspect accused of breaking into two stores on Wednesday.

A man was captured on surveillance video breaking into the store by kicking the glass door, and he was also seen opening up a drawer. Police say it did not appear anything was taken.

While officers were on the scene, they heard glass the sound of breaking from another store also located in the same block. When officers arrived, the front glass door was shattered. Police say it appears the suspect stole some change.
