Man Sneaks Around Home Under Child's Blanket During Suspected Burglary
Surveillance cameras captured a man sneaking around a New Zealand home under a child's blanket during a suspected burglary.
He avoided being fully seen by the cameras by covering himself in a blanket as he reportedly crawled around the house and stole cash and jewelry.
In the home surveillance footage, uploaded to the Counties Manukau Police Facebook, the suspect can be seen eerily looking up from the duvet, and flashing a toothy smile.
He can also be seen digging through drawers located on the other side of the room.
Cops are still trying determine the identity of the man, whom they say is Caucasian with a slim build.
One person on Facebook commented: "Some people literally stoop so low - to take kids' stuff - think the kid who owns it will use this cover again? So so sad."
In another comment, someone wrote "E.T. go home," making reference to the movie scene where E.T. is wrapped in a blanket and lifts a bike into the air to safety.
