That’s when, deputies said, he flashed his middle finger directly at the camera and started his heist.

The man is seen slowly pulling the cooler away for about 15 minutes so as not to disturb the sleeping clerk on the other side of the glass.

Deputies said the man was able to get away but they later arrested Norman and charged him with grand theft in connection to the heist.
