He covered his face with a mask. He wore socks on his hands so as not to leave behind any fingerprints. He crawled on the floor for about eight minutes to reach the safe - but in the end, the joke was on him. The safe was empty; the cash had been removed the night before.
Delray Beach Police are now searching for the "creeping, crawling criminal" and his accomplice, who stole the empty safe from a Domino's outlet in Florida.
"For about eight minutes, he crawled through the business, rummaging through a manager's desk, checking a cash drawer and grabbing a safe," said Dani Moschella, spokeswoman for the Delray Beach Police Department, to Sun Sentinel.
CCTV footage released by the police shows the burglar crawling on the floor shortly after 2:15 am on Thursday, reports Sun Sentinel.
"Recognize this creeping, crawling criminal? He and an accomplice were caught on surveillance video breaking a window at Domino's Pizza, stealing an empty safe," wrote Delray Beach Police while sharing the hilarious video.
