Authorities said he used a tool to unlock the computer and move it to a different location at a computer store in Carrollton, Texas.

After a few moments, the unknown man slipped the laptop under his shirt and into his pants before walking out of the store.

Police said the thief, who has not been arrested, returned to the scene of the crime nearly a week later, but left before store employees could contact authorities.
