The bizarre item man broke into Woolworths supermarket to steal

Police have been left baffled after a man caused hundreds of dollars worth of damage after breaking into a Woolworths store to steal a bag of mixed nuts.

The bizarre robbery occurred around 3.20am on Saturday, when the man forced his way into the supermarket on George Street in Sydney’s CBD.

Police said the man “physically pushed through the front glass sliding doors” causing $750 worth of damage.


Once inside, the hungry thief simply stole a packet of mixed nuts before leaving through the glass doors.

Officers have since released footage of the strange incident in the hopes of tracking the man down.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged between 45 and 50, and bald.

The man was wearing a grey shirt, black hooded jacket, jeans, and brown shoes.
