Careful Burglar Takes No Chances And Wears 2 Masks

By  | 

(AP) It could be called the case of the careful cat burglar. Authorities said a man wore not one, but two masks when he broke into a house in Beaufort on Wednesday. The Beaufort Gazette reported the suspect got away with a woman's purse and several other items.

He was draped in a sheet, but when the victim's son chased the burglar and tore the sheet off his head, it revealed only a white-faced mask similar to the one worn by the villain in the movie "Scream."

Beaufort Police Maj. Matt Clancy said the whole thing was "definitively unusual." There were no arrests Thursday.
