(Harrison, Oh.) – A thief ran off from a burglary attempt after falling through the roof of a jewelry store – and it was all captured on video.

Harrison Police on Thursday released video of a man breaking through the ceiling of R. Bacovin Jewelers on Stone Drive sometime during the New Year’s holiday. Investigators believe the unidentified suspect used a stolen ladder to get onto the roof of the business, then cut his way through.

After falling through the ceiling, the video shows the thief run off without grabbing any jewelry – probably because his crash landing set off an alarm.

The same suspect may have tried to pull off a similar burglary at a jewelry store in Montgomery, Ohio early Thursday morning. Police there and in Harrison may work together to try and solve the cases.

Anybody with information on either burglary should share with police by calling the Harrison Police Department at (513) 367-3715 or Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
