"He doesn't learn his lesson from the first store," said Gina Carter with the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Minutes later, the burglar was captured on camera shattering the glass door of the Dollar General store across the street. Police said he checked the cash registers but found them empty. 

"Apparently, this burglar's never had a day job and he doesn't realize money's not left in registers," said Carter.

Anyone with information on the burglaries should contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
