An ice cream shop in Southwest Austin caught a burglar on video Sunday morning.

Austin Scoops, located near the intersection of Escarpment Blvd and West Slaughter Lane, has been the victim of break-ins in the past, but this is the first time a suspect has been caught on video, according to owner Susan Joyner.

β€œIt's more than loss of money - it's the concern over safety for our employees, business time loss, clean up required, frustration, et...” stated Joyner in an email to CBS Austin.

The Austin Police Department has a case open and anyone who recognizes the suspect or has information regarding this incident are asked to call the Burglary Unit at 512-974-6941.
