BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WWJ) -- The search is on for a person who broke in and stole a safe from the Andiamo Italian restaurant early Monday morning.

Bloomfield Township police say officers were dispatched to the restaurant at 6676 Telegraph Road around 3:15 a.m. on the report of a burglary alarm. When officers arrived they found a door to the building open and what appeared to be fresh pry marks near the handle of the door.

Police discovered the manager’s office door was open and soon found markings on the floor where a safe had been sitting. The general manager for the restaurant was called to the scene and the manager confirmed a small safe was missing from the office.

It was not clear how much money was inside the safe at the time of the burglary. The case is currently under investigation and investigators are reviewing video footage from surrounding security cameras.

Police released a surveillance photo of the suspect's vehicle, which is believed to be a silver or gray Jeep Cherokee.

Anyone who recognizes the vehicle or has any information on the robbery is asked to call the Bloomfield Township Police Department at 248-433-7755.
