A burglar who broke into a house in Dannemora, New Zealand makes a hilariously bad attempt to cover himself from the view of the security camera using a child's duvet.

The video begins with the man squatting whilst trying to drape the full-length of the duvet over his body. He begins to walk towards the cabinet and peeks directly towards the camera showing the entirety of his face. In a scuttling motion, he reaches the cabinet and searches through the draws in hopes of finding riches. He managed to steal a number of items including cash and jewellery.

Using the security footage the man has been identified to be caucasian, slim build and in his 20's, if you have any further information on the man please contact Counties Manukau Police
