If you plan on committing a crime, you might want to make sure your plan is foolproof. One Minnesota Sheriff's Office is looking for a pair of thieves who recently made off with a security camera, that was still recording when it was taken recently.

The Goodhue County Sheriff's Office in Southern Minnesota is asking residents for help in identifying the car and or individuals who were involved in the brazen theft.

In the video, you can see an idling car, with two people inside. The passenger door then opens and it looks like a man with a long beard exits the car, while keeping his face down, and starts walking out of the view area. Suddenly a hand reaches up and covers the lens, and everything goes black for a second. As the thief gets back in the car, the camera which is still recording captures some images from inside the car, and then the video ends.

The Goodhue County Sheriff's Office wrote a reminder to would-be thieves to go along with the video:

If you steal a security camera, you should probably make sure it is not recording. We are looking for information about who these thieves are. If you have any information, please contact dispatch RE case # 23-1113

It's not clear if the thieves took anything other than the camera.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
