Surveillance video caught the unidentified man on camera on March 22 casing the Deerfield Beach home and “lurking around the property and peeking into the windows,” according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

The man returned the following morning on his bike and broke into the home through the sliding-glass doors, police said.

He wheeled off three Samsung flat-screen televisions, a Krups coffeemaker, three Amazon Fire TV Sticks, an Arlo Smart Home Security Camera System valued at over $500 and $800 worth of luxury bedding, according to the police report.

“To add insult to injury, the burglar used the victim’s own wagon and beanbag chair cover to haul away their most valuable items,” the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying and catching the thief.
