The burglar cut a hole through the siding of the Classy Cleaners on 5th Street sometime overnight, but cut himself quite severely in the process and left a trail of blood behind, police say.
Once inside, the burglar grabbed whatever cash he could find, which reportedly amounted to under $50.
An Ocean County Sherriff’s K9 unit attempted to trace the burglar, but with negative results.
Lakewood’s Detective Bureau and CIU are investigating.
The cleaners is still open for business.
