FOUNTAIN INN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

In a rash of burglaries around Fountain Inn this summer, police said a person dressed in dark clothing resembling that of a ninja broke into several gas stations and took cash.

The three known locations hit by the burglar were the Exxon on North Main Street, the Exxon on North Woods Drive, and an attempted burglary at the Sunoco on Milacron Drive.

"His ninja powers wouldn't allow him to get in. So he's obviously not that good of a ninja," said Sunoco manager Eva Gonzales.

She said surveillance video showed him trying to get in through the roof. 

Surveillance video at the North Main Street Exxon shows the burglar busting through the windows with a rock, then scouring the store for cash. Police said he got away with an undisclosed amount.

"We've also worked with surrounding agencies, with similar incidents they've had with a similar person wearing similar type of clothing," said Capt. Michael Hamilton with Fountain Inn police.

Police said the burglar has a distinct walk, pointing his feet to the outside.

Police said anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 23-CRIME.
