After this man broke into a building, he was ready to pull a Michael Jackson and "Beat It!"

According to the Fresno Police Department, David Seale allegedly obtained a key to a commercial building in California and broke into an office suite to steal an expensive laptop. The first time he entered the building and realized the key actually worked, he did some impressive break dancing to celebrate.

Police posted the hysterical video on Facebook saying David was charged with commercial burglary and the laptop was returned to its rightful owner. You can read their full post below.

"On 5/8/18, at approximately 1010 hours, NW Officer`s responded to a suspicious subject who had accessed a locked commercial building in the area of Shaw and Hughes and walked away. A tenant in the building had just reported a theft of an expensive lap top from over the weekend and there was no sign of a break in. The suspicious subject was contacted a short distance away, he was found to be in possession of the stolen lap top. The suspect was in possession of several keys as well, one of the keys opened/locked the building doors and another key opened/locked the victim`s office suite where the lap top had been taken. While the suspect was being processed at our headquarters, it was determined that he had provided a false name and was found to have several warrants for his arrest to include a probation warrant. David Seale was booked for possession of the stolen property and providing false information.

"Detectives of the NW Investigations Unit later went through three days of video from the business. They were able to see the suspect using a set of keys to enter the building during the late and early morning hours over the weekend. The suspect was also seen entering the victim`s office suite with a key and walking out with the stolen lap top. Based on this new evidence, the suspect was charged with commercial burglary. The office keys the suspect had in his possession were copies and not originals, it is unknown where the suspect obtained the keys from.

"One video clip shows the suspect doing a celebration dance after he had entered the locked business for the first time. The suspect actually entered the building and the victim`s office suite numerous times over the weekend."
