Video shows would-be burglar taking tumble

Police in California search for man

REDDING, Calif. - A would-be burglar may have gotten away, but it was no great escape.

Surveillance video captured the robbery attempt at a Redding grocery store earlier this month.

In the video, the culprit can be seen wearing pajama pants and what appears to be pantyhose over his head.

Video captured the man throwing a rock at the store's glass doors, which shatters, setting off the alarm.

Police said the alarm scared the man away, and he is seen tripping over a curb before tumbling away.

The store's owner has run the store for more than 35 years.

He told reporters he is used to attempted break-ins but none like this.

"I didn't even look at the video for 2 or 3 days or so," Kent Pfrimmer said.  "I kept hearing people commenting about how funny he looked and how funny it was."

Officers are still looking for the man.
