The man broke through a skylight while the bakery was closed over Christmas. The video was recently released.
He soon realized that there was no money to steal and tried to escape. Over the next half hour, he piled up buckets to stand on in a desperate attempt to leave the way he entered.
At one point, he used a cellular phone, probably to call for help.
Then, he looked at the camera and realized he had been taped the entire time.
Police were still searching for the man.
