Police are hoping that surveillance camera footage from both inside the store and on the street may help them identify the person who took all the $5 bills from the cash register at the Landes and Blackwell Mobil station at Elmwood and Lexington avenues on Friday night.

The thief, after fleeing with the $5 bills at about 8:15 p.m., dropped his cell phone and was seen getting into the rear passenger side of a vehicle that fled east on Lexington toward Delaware Avenue, police said.

Witnesses provided officers with a license plate number for that vehicle.
