Reward out for clumsy crook

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - He's not exactly a master thief, but this clumsy intruder did make it away from the scene of his crime. Now, the convenience store manager is asking for your help to find him.

In this case, the crook came in late at night when the supermarket, La Perla, was closed. A surveillance captured it all.

Now, there's a hefty reward being offered to find the culprit. The man had a rag or T-shirt over his face, and he was wearing light-colored shorts and what appears to be a white T-shirt.

The supermarket is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to his arrest. He's described as an Hispanic male, 5'6 tall, 25-35 years old, stocky build.

Police say there have been other similar break-ins in that area recently.

The break-in only took a few seconds, and the crook was in and out in no time. He did, however, fall on his way out.

If you know anything, you can call the store owner at 786-315-7445.
