I wish I could've been inside this guy's head when he came up with this plan. It screams Scooby Doo.
Surveillance video from a residential building in China shows the robber peeking his head around a corner after climbing up a flight of stairs. He quickly notices the security camera and disappears.
20 minutes later, he returns, this time dressed as a ghost!
Since the camera had already captured his face, officers were able to track him down. He didn't manage to steal anything, other than some laughs from the world. He did however admit to some other crimes while he was detained.
