DECATUR — Police are seeking a would-be burglar after every stage of a failed attempt to burglarize a Decatur business was captured on surveillance video Saturday evening.

Sgt. Josh Sheets said the cameras at Parke Warehouses, 3585 East Mound Road, showed the male suspect approach on a bicycle about 7 p.m, followed by an office window breaking. The suspect is seen dragging over a picnic table to stand on, picking glass fragments out the window and climbing inside.

“But he's inside for about 10 seconds and then runs out of the door next to the window,” said Sheets. He believes the burglar was spooked by the building's alarm system and fled before he had the chance to steal anything.
