NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - It is unlikely a burglar breaking into a home in Mid-City realized that a surveillance camera was recording his entire performance step-by-step.

Police released the video in hopes of identifying the man who broke into the house in the 500 block of S. Saint Patrick Street on Monday morning.

In the video, the man first rings the doorbell, then peeks inside. A few minutes later, he throws a rock through a glass and manages to unlock the door.

Investigators say the burglar left through the front door with an undetermined amount of jewelry.
