CHEHALIS, Wash. -- Perhaps too ashamed to to come in during regular business hours, a masked man allegedly broke into a Chehalis adult gift shop last week, making off with more than $1,500 in sex toys.

Surveillance footage shows the man attempting to ram his Ford Ranger pickup truck through the front of the store in the 800 block of West Main Street shortly before 7:30 a.m. Feb. 7.

That plan failed, and the man ended up simply breaking a window to get into the shop, according to the Chehalis Police Department.

He proceeded to steal a sack full of sex toys before escaping, according to police.

Officers responded to the shop's alarm but were unable to find the man.
