Cops are searching for a burglar caught on camera as he robbed a Bronx laundromat, police said Sunday.

The thief robbed M&K Laundromat on Montgomery Avenue near West Tremont Avenue in Morris Heights around 4:00 a.m. Wednesday, breaking in through a window using a saw to remove an air conditioner, cops said.

As the clueless burglar rummages through the laundromat, he looks directly at a surveillance camera, the video shows. After realizing he is being watched, the panic-ridden thief pulls a mask over his face.

Police said the man continued undeterred, using a crowbar to break into a safe, making off with an undetermined amount of cash.

Cops described him as Hispanic, around 5-foot-9, 120 pounds with a goatee, brown eyes and black hair. He was last seen wearing black shoes and a hooded jacket.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to call the NYPD‘s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1800577TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 188857PISTA (74782).
