Naked burglar caught on video

This is a still from surveillance video of a fellow who robbed two Abington, Pennsylvania homes on Friday. From CBS News:
Burglarnudeeeee One witness said she saw a naked man fleeing from the (first) apartment just after it had been robbed.

Surveillance video also shows the suspect wearing dark colored shorts and a white sleeveless tank top, apparently before he decided to "dress down."

The same naked thief is wanted in a second burglary the same day, according to police. A homeowner told CBS 3 Philadelphia the suspect went through her 14-year-old daughter's undergarments. Women's clothing was reportedly stolen from the dresser drawers, and obscenities had been written on the mirrors.
"Caught on Tape: Naked Burglar"


  1. If he didn’t want to be noticed, I actually think getting naked was the wrong move. EVERYONE remembers when they see a naked person. If he’d been dressed in average clothes probably no one would have paid him a second thought.

  2. If it wasn’t for the “pawing through 14-year-old girls underwear” side of things, I would just have assumed he was here to kill Sarah Connor. Unless, that’s the girl’s name in which case… time to boycott AI research

  3. I don’t think he’s a thief of physical need in as much as it’s psychological.

    Unrelated: He seems fit.

  4. It’s “Abington” (inexplicably rated by Forbes as a top place to live) and it is right down the street from my home. Hooray.

  5. “Could you describe the perpetrator?”
    “Well, I didn’t really notice his face….”

  6. Maybe he just wanted to really exemplify being a dick. Was he voting for a certain intolerant political party at the same time?

  7. Dbarak@~16: You mean the guy who keeps staining his reputation?

    (Enjoy that flashback to 90’s Late Nite? Have a cigar…)

  8. You have to wonder why he bothers to steal anything. He seems content with the bare necessities of life.

  9. If he wasn’t a fetishist burglar, there’s a kind of odd logic to it. Ideally a burgler doesn’t want to be seen at all. So if he met his goal, no one would have seen that he was naked, because they wouldn’t have seen him at all.

    What’s the perfect uniform to help ninjas blend in to any surroundings?
    Their birthday suits.
    Have you ever seen a naked ninja?
    Works pretty good, doesn’t it?

    Fetishist just give upstanding naked burglars and ninjas a bad image.

  10. Its not Albington, it’s Abington, I live near there, but I also checked if there was an albington, but there wasn’t it happend here.
    fun fact: matthew fox (Jack from Lost)is from there.

  11. The more important story is that the world would have ended if they hadn’t blurred his ass for television.

  12. Hmm…Down-on-his-luck drag queen? So desperate for some new feminine duds that he broke into a couple appartments to find some?

    No matter how you cut it, this crime gets a big “EEEEWWWWWW!!!!!11!!!”

  13. This is the best thing I’ve read on boingboing this week. So elemental, caveman, and hunter-gatherer. In some strange way it restores my faith in the creativity of humanity. Yeah, I need to get some sleep, but thank you naked panty hunter guy for making my day.
