After shattering the window, he stood outside the doors for several minutes. He then decided to enter the building by going through the broken window and stumbled right into the lobby.

Once inside he walked around, and it’s all captured on video.

Huntsville police investigators now want your help identifying this man.

“In cases like this we do want the public’s help. If they have any information please contact the Huntsville Police Department and get in contact with the investigators,” said one Huntsville officer.
