Man dressed as 'ghost' tries to rob off-licence
A man in the US state of Alabama has been caught on CCTV attempting to rob an off-licence while dressed as a "ghost".
Footage reveals the wannabe-burglar running half-heartedly up and down the aisles of a shop dressed in a tatty white sheet, complete with two eye-holes.
The man spent several minutes searching for something to steal, and even tried a couple of store rooms.
But in the end the "spook" gave up - not because he couldn't find what he was looking for, but because his costume kept slipping off and threatening to reveal his true identity.
Police have now embarked on a "ghostbusting" search for the thief.
