Police have identified a man wanted for using an axe to break into Gilligan's Restaurant on Ladson Road last month.

The Summerville Police Department is looking for 26-year-old Justin Robert Murray on second-degree burglary charges.

Officers with the Summerville Police Department responded to the restaurant in the 3800 block of Ladson Road at 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 29. Upon arrival, police found an axe lying near a shattered window by the front door.

According to the incident report, surveillance video from the scene shows a "younger white male subject, wearing dark shorts and a dark t-shirt, with sandy blonde or brown hair."

The video shows the man break the window with the axe before he walks to the bar area and opens a cash drawer before taking a bottle of liquor from the bar.

The video also shows that the man was wearing black gloves. Police say the burglar was in the restaurant for about a minute and a half before he left through the axe-smashed window. Police said the axe found at the scene had a bright yellow handle.

Police on the scene also noticed that the suspect had broken into the cash register in the to-go area. A manager told police no cash was left in either register, so the burglar apparently only made away with the bottle of liquor.
