Bizarre Security Video: Burglar Twerks Prior to Heist

12/15/2013 at 01:00 PM EST

Some criminals just want to dance. At least one robber did in Brooklyn, according to security footage.

Lindsey Riddle, 27, returned home Dec. 4 to discover that someone had ripped open packages belonging to her and her boyfriend, looted the contents and left the discarded boxes.

When Riddle consulted her building's security camera footage, the crime was captured on tape, but there was something more. Something wonderful.

The female thief's role in the burglary was apparently a specific one: The footage shows her standing in front of the victim's building, twerking. "The interesting part was what happened before the break-in, in which the woman proceeded to straight up twerk outside of our building. For an entire hour. Rest breaks were had, but she got right back up and dropped it like it was hot," Riddle told Gothamist.

"Her endurance was rather impressive," Riddle continued. "I'm not exaggerating when I say she did this for an hour."
