Burglar poses for neighbor's surveillance camera

Posted: Updated:

JACKSONVILLE, FL (NBC) - Police in Jacksonville, Florida are asking for the public's help finding a man who apparently stole a hat and wore it, stole some snacks and ate them, then paused briefly for a photo before disappearing.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office two homeowners were burglarized around 11 a.m. Tuesday in the Summer Trees neighborhood.

Chuck Lucas saw a man who he thought didn't belong coming from his neighbor's yard.

He called police, then took a picture of the man with his camera phone.

The man actually posed for Lucas.

The suspect was eating Cheez-Its and wearing a ball cap.

As Lucas was talking to police, Ricki Bower came up and said her home had been broken into.

Lucas showed her the picture and Bower said "those are my Cheez-Its and that is my husband's ball cap."

She said she had just purchased the Cheez-Its and her husband won the Jack Del Rio-autographed hat at a Team Teal event he had recently attended.

Bower also reported small electronics and jewelry stolen, in addition to the Cheez-Its and ballcap.

"The jewelry was my mother's. She is deceased, and I would love to get that back because it is irreplaceable. He can have the Cheez-Its," she said.
