SLIDELL, Louisiana (ABC News / WVUE) -- Many burglars are known for their endless array of disguises during their cimes, but one burglar in Slidell, Louisiana apparently forgot his and improvised.

The suspect, Richard Boudreaux, 23, had to use a bucket when he robbed his former employer, Kenney's Seafood.

In surveillance video Boudreaux is seen walking around the store dressed in camouflage and gloves, packing everything but a mask.

The buck prop hindered him a little as he tilts it up every so often to catch a glimpse of his surroundings.

Police say he also tried to break into a pawn shop but didn't have any luck.

His disguise proved to be a bad idea, though. Police were able to identify him and arrested him at his home.

Boudreaux has been booked on two counts of burglary.
