Police in Columbus, Ohio, are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man they’ve named the “Bobcat burglar.” The man was caught on camera robbing a Dollar General store.
CCTV footage released by the Columbus Division of Police shows the clumsy burglar, who was wearing an Ohio University Bobcat sweatshirt, fumbling and bumbling his way through the robbery.
The video shows the burglar shattering a concrete block while trying to break a glass door. He is later seen wandering around the store and climbing onto a shopping cart to reach a top shelf. He then falls to the ground, sending items tumbling down on top of him.
Police said the man stole alcohol, cigarettes, food, and electronics once he made his way inside.
“We can’t make this stuff up,” police said in a post on the department’s Facebook page.
“While crime isn’t funny, this Bobcat burglar handed us these bloopers on a silver platter.” Police said they’re “on the prowl” to identify the man.
