“He was quite brazen and he was all caught on camera,” Kenia Fallat, Miami police spokesman, told WSVN.

In the video, he attempts to maneuver the big machine by scooting it inch by inch. After about three minutes, he pushes the machine full of food onto the elevator and takes it from the first floor up to the eighth.

“When he got to the eighth floor, he pushed it into the hallway and it appears that he was intending to take the money that was inside the vending machine,” Fallat said.

The machine was found with damage to the money slot, but the man had no luck getting inside to take money or food.

Police are looking for the man seen in the video.
