Police released this surveillance photo of a man seen in the D'Angelo restauarnt in Concord about the time an employee's bag went missing. 

CONCORD – Police are asking for the public's help identifying a man who was in an employees-only section of D'Angelo sandwich shop last month when an employee's bag containing electronics went missing.

The theft was discovered about 5:30 p.m. July 9 at the 121 S. Main St. restaurant.

An employee left the restaurant for about an hour between 3 and 4 p.m., leaving behind a bag containing her laptop computer, digital camera and cellphone in an employee-only area in the rear of the restaurant.

The laptop is a 17.1-inch blue HP computer; the cellphone is a Verizon Samsung "slider;" and the camera is a silver Olympus 12-megapixel digital camera.

Police reviewed store surveillance video which at 3:05 p.m. recorded a white man, about 40 years old, wearing a Boston Red Sox baseball hat, dark-colored shirt, cargo shorts, and flip-flop sandals, entering the restaurant through a rear door.

He appeared to check the area to see if anyone saw him and then was recorded walking around in the employee-only area before walking off camera. At some point, he walked out of the view of the camera and is not seen again.

The video was shown to both store employees and managers, but none of them recognized the man. Police identified the man as a "person of interest" because he was in the area at the time of the alleged theft.

Anyone who has information relative to any criminal incident is asked to call Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100, or submit information online to the website at, or text TIP234 and a message to CRIMES (274637).

Crimeline awards cash to anyone whose information leads to the arrest and/or indictment of criminals. All tips remain anonymous.
