SLIDELL, La., Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Louisiana police said a burglar who attempted to hide his identity from security cameras by putting a bucket over his head was too late with the precaution.

Slidell police said Richard Boudreaux, 23, burglarized multiple businesses in a single night last week, including his former employer, Kenney's Seafood, WDSU-TV, New Orleans, reported Wednesday.

Police said Boudreaux realized while at Kenney's Seafood the business used security cameras and he wasn't wearing a mask, so he placed a bucket over his head. However, investigators said his face had already been seen by the cameras.

Boudreaux, who was arrested on burglary and drug charges, told police he chose Kenney's Seafood because he needed money and had "bad blood" with the owner. He said he also attempted to break into Jerry's Buy and Sell to steal a gun because he feared future gun control laws.
