Deputies in Florida say a thief worked for 15 minutes to drag a cooler full of Good Humor ice cream past a sleeping clerk at a gas station near Fort Lauderdale.

Surveillance cameras captured a man walking up to the Oakland Park store at 4:09 a.m. on April 2 to find the clerk sleeping.

Authorities say the man opened the ice cream cooler, peered at the clerk, looked directly into the camera and flashed a middle finger.

After a few minutes, he carefully pulled the $2,500 cooler through the store's doors.

Authorities arrested Dennis Norman on grand theft charges on April 22. He was released from jail on $1,000 bond. There was no phone number available for Norman.
