BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The man who Biloxi Police say burglarized a convenience store Monday afternoon was nice enough to smile for the surveillance cameras. Now officers are showing off his mug hoping someone will recognize the man and turn him in.

Investigators say around 3pm, the man walked into the Highway 90 store and headed for a back office where he stole the cash. Police aren't saying how much he got away with. It all happened while employees were busy assisting customers.

The burglar was last seen driving a newer model black Dodge Charger with chrome rims. The surveillance photos show the man inside the store.
