Slidell, La. - Slidell police say a burglar forgot an important element of his disguise as he planned a night of crime.

Police say 23 year-old Richard Boudreaux dressed all in camouflage, wore gloves and packed his tools when he showed up to burglarize his former employer, Kenney's Seafood.

But, they say he apparently forgot his mask. They say Boudreaux knew the business had surveillance cameras so he improvised and covered his head with a bucket as he searched the business for money.

The cameras still managed to catch glimpses of his face though, and that's what allowed police to identify him as the culprit.

Investigators say he also tried to break into Jerry's Buy and Sell Pawn Shop with no luck.

Police arrested Boudreaux at his home and booked him with two counts of simple burglary.
