June 20 (UPI) -- The owners of a Texas smoke shop have released security camera footage of a burglar slithering like a snake across the business' floor.

The Smoking Glass store in Houston released security camera footage of the Saturday burglary, which involved a man moving across the floor in a snake-like manner to steal $1,000 worth of merchandise and cash.


The burglar, who entered through the store's only window without security bars, also caused about $700 worth of damage, co-owner Billy Cosgrove said.

"I've never seen anybody crawl on video like that to evade the security we have set up," Cosgrove told KTRK-TV.

Co-owner Chris Durbin said the burglar was apparently trying to avoid motion detectors.
