"We only know that last part because he's about as skilled at securing his pants as he is at being a decent person," Polk County Sheriff's Office wrote on social media. "Seriously, you're going to break into someone's business then flip them off their security camera?"

Psst...Mr. Burglar...Your red undies are showing.

***UPDATE*** Busted! Thanks to a great CrimeStoppers tip, our Cricket Wireless burglar has been identified and arrested. His name is Aldair Gonzalez of Wahneta. Aldair's truck still had evidence in his truck that links him to the crime, and wouldn't you know it, this isn't the first time he's been in trouble for burglary. Aldair's mugshot is below in the comments section. ORIGINAL POST FOLLOWS: This is the case of The Red Briefs Burglar. On Friday, March 15th, at 3:00 a.m., our suspect did a bad thang at the Cricket Wireless store at 3346 Rifle Range Road in Wahneta; he shattered the glass of the front door and burgled the store. Well…what can we say about our suspect? He appears to be Hispanic, and at the time of his crime he was wearing a black tank-top, blue jeans, and red undies. We only know that last part because he’s about as skilled at securing his pants as he is at being a decent person. Seriously, you’re going to break into someone’s business then flip them off their security camera?!? Dude. So not cool. Our suspect was driving a white 2000’s model Ford F-150 4-door. And we suspect our suspect may not be a brilliant man. Just watching him in action leads us to believe he hadn’t really thought this whole thing out. If you recognize him or the truck or both, please call Detective Mims at 863-678-4115, or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a CASH REWARD contact Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477).
