An attempted shoplifter was caught on camera trying to take off from a Janesville music store with an instrument down his pants.

Surveillance video caught the man walking with a flute down the back of his pants and running up his back. It happened at Voigt Music Center in downtown Janesville.

An employee confronted the man before he left, but the store says he never left the flute. He drove away with a woman in a late model, brown, Blazer-like truck, according to the store.

Voigt Music Center released the following statement via Facebook:

"Hint to criminals. Don’t try to steal things right in front of a camera. You do it at my place, and your face will get posted right here for everyone to see. I hope someday to put a name with the face. Oh, and you aren’t welcome back, ever."

The flute is now being used as a stand for a lamp.

This gentleman just paid us a visit, and decided to try to walk out with a flute in his pants. Luckily, we saw it in...
