(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest a man on a charge of burglary after allegedly breaking into a convenience store, stealing lottery tickets and then cashing the winning ticket at the same store, according to police in Florida.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office released a video of the theft, and asked people to come forward with information that can lead to an arrest.

The video shows the thief lowering himself from the roof of the store located in the 5000 block of Lake Worth Road. He then headed over to the lottery tickets and grabbed a bunch of them before leaving from the store.

Later, the brazen thief came back to the store with a winning ticket in order to cash it.

“To the brilliant burglar who broke in through the roof to steal lottery tickets, did you not notice the cameras? You must not have because you came back a few days later to the same store to cash the stolen lottery tickets.

“This unknown male entered the business located in the 5000 block of Lake Worth Road, Greenacres, through the roof. Once inside the suspect took an amount of lottery scratch off tickets.

At a later date, the suspect returned to the store to cash in winning lottery tickets,” police wrote on Facebook.
