Bumbling Thief Scoots and Crawls Across Floor, Still Fails To Avoid CCTV

A security camera has captured a bizarre thief who tried to slither across the floor on his belly to avoid detection on CCTV.

Police released footage of a break-in at a home in Melbourne, Australia, which occurred on Jan. 16, reported 7News.

In the footage, the man – dressed completely in black with a pair of dark sunglasses – can be seen moving from room to room, crawling across the floor to avoid the camera.

But after finding two safes, the thief forgets about the camera and allegedly tries to remove the heavy safes from the property, according to a police statement.

Police said a neighbour then disturbs the man, who then fled the property empty-handed.

The man has been described to be of Caucasian appearance and aged between 30 and 40 years old.

If you have any information on the suspect, please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
