West Virginia State Police are searching for a man who broke into a Chapmanville grocery store while covered in a blanket.
The blanket covered bandit broke into Tomblin's on June 15th and stole several items while the owner was out of town.
Police say he got into the store through an apartment over the building, found the blanket and wrapped himself up to try and hide his identity. Investigators say he forgot to hide what appears to be a home confinement bracelet on his right ankle and several tattoos on his left arm.
A neighbor called police after she noticed something appeared suspicious.
Anybody with information on the burglary should call police.
