Bird-Brained Pigeon Thief Disguises Self With Bucket On Head

A thief managed to steal $7,000 worth of pigeons and tools from a Miami store on Friday despite using a disguise that can only be described as bird-brained: A bucket on the head.

The store, El Viejo Lazaro Botanica, was robbed a few hours after owners Mae and Nelson Hernandez closed up for the evening. Surveillance cameras recorded a person jumping over a fence and entering the locked business, according to local station WSVN-TV.

The thief, who was also wearing a trash bag, grabbed about 40 racing pigeons valued anywhere from $100 to $1,000 as well as some tools, the Miami Herald reported.

This is the second bird robbery the store has suffered in the last six months, Nelson Hernandez told the Herald.

“If this keeps happening I will be out of business,” he said.

Someone stole 15 pigeons that time, according to CBS Miami.
