Just after 6:00 a.m. on Friday, Police say a burglar used a crowbar to pry open the front door of Allen's Camera in American Fork. He either didn't know a surveillance camera was looking right at him or didn't care. Either way police Lt. Darren Falslev says the suspect got away with $8000 dollars in gear and cash.

He set off the alarm but was too quick for police.

"It would appear he knew exactly what he was going for or he just happened to grab the most expensive stuff he could find. One of the two, Falslev said.

The surveillance video has been posted on Facebook and people commenting can't help but notice the crooks pants need to be pulled up. But police say people don't need to be looking for baggy pants

"I don't know so much about that especially because we have such a good shot of this individual's face," Falsev said.

If you recognize the face police want to hear from you. You can call them at 801-763-3020.
