Deputy Bruce Milne, of the Seminole County Sheriff Office, recognized the suspect as repeat offender Edward Wilburn, investigators said.

In the video, Wilburn tries the door initially without a mask, and then runs from the store to rummage through clothes from a nearby thrift shop before returning in disguise.

Once masked, Wilburn left with a box filled with alcohol and cigarettes.

He was arrested and charged with burglary of an unoccupied structure, grand theft and committing a third-degree felony while wearing a mask or a hood.
