(Scroll down for video) A bizarre theft was caught on a store surveillance video.

Sunny Patel, owner of the Best-One store in the Knowle district of Bristol, England, shared three videos on Facebook, showing the theft being carried out.

The videos show a man crawling into the store on all fours, grabbing children’s magazines and crawling out again.

However, the man was not satisfied with just a few magazines and he came back twice before he was caught.

In the videos, the thief was seen reaching in through the automatic doors and grabbing a package of toilet paper from a shelf, and he placed it in the doorway to prevent it from closing.

The man then got down on his hands and knees, crawled a few feet into the store, grabbed a handful of magazines, and fled.

Patel said that the magazines were designed for young children and they featured popular cartoon character Peppa Pig.

The video shows the man returning moments later, and repeating the same steps to take more magazines.

The man came back a third time, but this time, he was caught by an employee. However, the thief managed to flee with about $31 worth of magazines.

Police are investigating the theft and are looking for the suspect.

Patel said that although he did not lose a large amount of money, he wants to send a message to locals that we will not tolerate people stealing from his store.
