A would-be burglar is caught on surveillance video at a Lincoln coin shop.

Lincoln police say, on Monday, someone tried to use a blow torch on the front door of, The Coinery, in The Piedmont Shopping Center.

The perpetrator wasn't able to get in.

There was only 10 dollars in damage.

A neighboring business, The Groom Room, reported a similar crime last Friday.

"Someone attempted to melt the lock but instead melted the door shut.  They caused about $200 damage to The Groom Room," says Officer Katie Flood with the Lincoln Police Department.

Police are still looking for a suspect.

Last year, The Coinery reported an attempted burglary, a burglary and a robbery to law enforcement.

If you have any information, you're urged to call Crimestoppers at 475- 3600.
