Authorities are asking for information in the breaking and entering of the Lantern Inn on Ash Street Monday.

According to the Goldsboro Police Department, at around 5:15 a.m. Monday an employee from Lantern Inn reported that a man threw a brick through the rear door of the restaurant.

Upon gaining entry to the establishment, the suspect headed to the cash register.

Police say the suspect is captured on security footage, and describes the perpetrator as a white man who is approximately 6 feet tall weighing around 160 pounds.

According to police, the suspect appeared to be shirtless, however, he did have a black cloth -- that could have possibly been his shirt -- wrapped around his face in an attempt to conceal his identity.

Various items were taken from inside the business.
