WATCH: House burglar tries to trick security camera with bath towel
SLIDELL - The search for a burglar on the Northshore shouldn't prove too difficult for police after a surveillance camera got a nice, clear look at his face.
According to the Slidell Police Department, the less-than-stellar criminal broke into a home on Park Drive while the occupants were away Monday. A surveillance camera set up inside the home filmed the thief as he crept through a hallway.
In the video, the burglar stops in his and tracks and stares dead-on into the camera after he realizes he's being recorded. He briefly disappears from view, only to return with a towel poorly covering his face.
In a desperate attempt to cover his tracks, the man steals the camera, along with a Playstation 4 video game console. Little did he know that the security video was backed up to a separate hard drive.
Slidell Police are now trying to identify the suspect, described to be a tall, thin African-American male with a large afro-style haircut. The suspect was also wearing a large cross necklace.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Kyle Taylor at 985-646-6174 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
