WESTPORT, Conn. (AP) — Police are looking for a man they say posed as a guest at a Connecticut wedding reception and stole gifts from the bride and groom.

They say the man fled the Longshore Inn in Westport on Saturday night with a birdcage filled with wedding cards, many apparently containing cash for the couple.

Police used dogs to try to track the man. They recovered the empty birdcage.

The wedding crasher was seen on video surveillance cameras. Police have released screen grabs in the hope somebody might recognize him.
