Crook rips off million dollar Texas closet

CONROE, Texas - A crook manages to keep his identity hidden, even though he's caught on camera emptying a woman's closet.

He made off with nearly a $1 million worth of handbags and jewelry.

Round one of the million dollar rip-off lasted six minutes.

The bold burglar completely covered with no identifying features anywhere.

The thief's gloved hands picking their way through each cabinet of Theresa Roemer's grand collection.

After stuffing a few bags full of jewelry and watches, the crook leaves but comes back seconds later for five more minutes of purse pilfering.

This time using the elaborate shelving as a ladder to grab more goods.

Detectives say this went on for 20 more minutes before the bandit finally fled.

Detectives admit the surveillance video is grainy and a long shot for positive identifications, but they're hopeful.

"You never know, somebody that knows the person might be able to identify the person, also someone in the neighborhood may know."
