A bandit committed a brazen, "Oceans 11"-style robbery of a Sunglass Hut in California.

Surveillance video filmed July 6 shows the man forcing the store's employee to disarm the alarm, then lock the door.

The masked culprit then spray-paints the security cameras black, so no more can be seen.

The next glimpse of the suspected is provided by a camera outside the store.

The robber is seen walking calmly past other shoppers in broad daylight, with garbage bags full with sunglasses in each hand.

The stolen goods are worth tens of thousands of dollars, officials said.

Police hope the released video will help them catch the suspect.
