PLANTATION, Fla. – Police in Plantation are looking for a man who stole a $1,300 remote control helicopter from Maniacs Hobby.

The theft happened on November 26.

Surveillance video shows a man pacing around the front entrance of the store before stealing the helicopter.

"He was pacing a lot and then he just looked super suspicious," said Gabriella Camirand, who works at the store.

Police described him as being 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet 1 inch tall with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, black shorts, and a green baseball cap.

Anyone with information on the theft is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.

In August, a man stole two radio-controlled cars from the store.
