Officials in Brigantine are asking for your help with locating an alleged burglary suspect and a damaged car that he was driving.

According to the Brigantine Police Department, officers responded to the 700 block of East Beach Ave. around 2:00 Friday afternoon for the report of a burglary in progress.

There, "a witness told police that the...pictured male arrived to the area in a gray sedan, approached the rear of an unoccupied residence with a crow bar and attempted to force open the rear door. A witness confronted the male who then fled the area."

As he fled from the home, cops say he hit a telephone pole, which caused the grille of the vehicle to fall off and remain at the scene.
