HE THINKS he’s ticked every box and is going to get away without a trace, but what this Gold Coast supermarket robber doesn’t realise is his face is in plain sight of a security camera.
Police have today released vision of a man they want to speak to in relation to an investigation into the break and enter of a Surfers Paradise supermarket in the early hours of Monday, March 4.
Around 12.20am, the man broke into the business on Surfers Paradise Boulevard and stole a stack of cash.

The vision shows him wearing a black cap with a face mask tucked under his chin as he fiddles with something just out of the frame for around a minute.
He then steps back, exposing the right side of his face to the camera, before pulling the mask up and walking out of shot.
The robber returns around five minutes later with a bag of what is believed to be cash, and places it in a black backpack.
He then took of in a dark-coloured hatchback, which was last seen travelling down Ada Bell Way at Southport.
The man is described as Caucasian in appearance, around 180cm tall and was wearing jeans, white running shoes, a black cap and a distinctive ‘Berik’ brand motorcycle jacket at the time of the incident.
Police urge anyone who may recognise the man or vehicle depicted in the below footage to come forward.
