Police search for Bensonhurst juice bar thief
Security cameras caught a burglar breaking into a Bensonhurst juice bar Wednesday morning.
Police say the thief made off with $3,100 and electronics from Fuel Fever Grill and Juice Bar on 18th Avenue.
Susan and Ramy Rashed, the married couple that owns the store, say they usually they don't keep much money in the store, but they had placed rent money in the register the day of the robbery. 
They say the burglar quickly shut off the circuit breaker once he entered the business, but not before cameras recorded him for almost a half-hour as he worked to get inside through the back door.
It's the first time the store has fallen victim to a burglary in nine years since it opened, the couple says.
Police recovered fingerprints at the crime scene. The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
