One thief in Jefferson County, Colorado, appears to have learned a lesson from his own misdeeds … but not in the right way.

The man was spotted on surveillance images using a stolen credit card to buy – that’s right – a home security system, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

The purchase happened on Oct. 6 at the Best Buy at 5395 S. Wadsworth Blvd. The surveillance photos were released on Tuesday.

The suspect is described as a white man who was last seen wearing a blue-and-black flannel shirt, blue jeans and sunglasses.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts or identity is asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office at 303-271-5612.
