A cat burglar was caught on security video on April 13 breaking into New York Self Storage at 1053 Metropolitan Ave., in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y. The male suspect squeezed through a skylight and got away with $1,000 cash and a MacBook laptop computer, according to police.
The man was described as cavalier, casually dangling a cigarette in his mouth and smirking at a video camera with his face exposed before blocking the lens. Video footage also shows him operating a payloader before exiting the equipment and calmly crossing the street, a source reported.
The thief was wearing blue jeans, black sneakers, a baseball cap and sunglasses. Police believe his knowledge of operating the payloader could mean he’s a construction worker.
Anyone with knowledge of the incident is encouraged to call police.
