A man carrying a hammer stormed into a Miramar fast-food restaurant early Tuesday morning and attempted to open a cash resister by smashing the drawer.
After several failed attempts, the man moved on and ripped two registers from a counter and then ran out with them, store surveillance shows.
On Tuesday, Miramar police released the video and video from another break-in involving the same man in hopes of identifying him.
The first incident happened just before 2 a.m. Tuesday at the KFC/Taco Bell at 3650 Utopia Dr. In that robbery, the man used the hammer to smash the front window and then pry open the registers, police said.
