Burglar caught on camera breaking into coffee stand

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The owner of a coffee kiosk wants the person who broke into his business caught, but not for the reason you may think.

Bebo's Coffee, located on NE 82nd Avenue, was burglarized early Sunday morning.

Surveillance video shows a man breaking out a window and crawling into the kiosk, rummaging through cupboards and grabbing a bag of money.

The man stole $150 and caused several hundred dollars in damage, said owner Ronnie Scott.

Scott said he was first angry and hurt when he discovered the burglary.

Now he feels compassion for the burglar. He wants the man caught, but doesn't think jail time would be helpful.

"It doesn't do me any good to say find the dude, lock him up, throw away the key," said Scott. "It doesn't do me any good. So let's find the guy and help him."
