LAKELAND, Fla.-- Police are looking for a man who stole a generator but lost his pants in the process.

On November 18 a man broke into a Hyundai dealership using a fire extinguisher. But getting through the hole was a little more than he bargained for. The man lost his shorts for a moment while climbing through the hole.

Police say he was able to make off with a generator.

He was last seen walking down a street nearby the dealership.

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the bumbling burglar. Anyone with information is urged to call Lakeland Police Detective Scott Hutton at 863.834.8969.
