MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis police say a man broke into a Public Works building on Levee Road only to get away with paper products and soap. 

“Sounds mental, maybe he's a mental person. I don't know the reason he did it,” said a nearby resident.

The facility is in a remote area, not easy to access. Security surveillance shows video of the man inside the building and walking away with what he stole.

“Maybe he was looking for something," said the resident. "He shouldn't have did it."

Public Works employees showed up for work and noticed a hole had been cut in the front gate.  They also noticed the missing items.

Nearby residents who saw the photos of the man say it seemed like a dumb thing to do.

“Pity, crazy.”
