    A burglar was caught on a surveillance camera inside the Dunkin' Donuts at 903 Blue Hills Avenue in Bloomfield early Sunday morning.

    A burglar climbed in through a rooftop vent to break into a Dunkin' Donuts in Bloomfield over the weekend.

    Employees arriving at the Dunkin' Donuts at 903 Blue Hills Avenue around 4:45 a.m. on Sunday found two cash registers had been forced open. They called police who reviewed video from the store's surveillance cameras.

    The video showed a masked burglar come into the store through a vent in the ceiling around 12:40 a.m. on Sunday. The person tried unsuccessfully to open the store's safe, but then was able to cut open the two cash registers, police said. The burglar then left through the same vent with an undetermined amount of money.

    Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Sgt. James Salvatore, of the Bloomfield Police Department, at 860-242-5501 ext. 5231.
