The shop owner released the CCTV footage after a suspect crawled into the shop snatching magazines for children.
The footage was captured in Bristol as the man appeared to use loo roll to stop the sliding doors from disturbing his heist.
In the footage the man can be seen crawling into the shop on Friday evening just before 9pm.
The suspect crawls into the Best-One shop in Knowle, Bristol, before grabbing a set of children’s magazines.

In a different angle, the man appears to grab a pack of loo roll to stop the sliding doors from smashing into him as he grabbed the magazines.
Once he was in the clear the man looked from side to side for witnesses before he crawled into the store snatching the magazines.
After he grabbed a handful, the man in grey tracksuit bottoms and dark jacket appeared to return for more magazines.
When the man was spotted by a member of staff, he decided to bizarrely stay still in an attempt to get away with grabbing the magazines, before he was asked to leave the store.

“A member of staff then spotted him crawling for the third time and was asked to leave, after an exchange of words he then left with goods that were not paid for.
“I have taken to Facebook to make as many people aware of [this man’s] habits, this post was to name and shame him.”
