A man accused of shoplifting at a Mobile, Alabama, Walmart made a daring escape by climbing through the store's ceiling.

The incident happened Thursday and was captured on cell phone cameras by incredulous customers watching it unfold.

Walmart employees first stopped the suspect outside the store, believing he had stolen shoes and other items.

When they took the man inside for questioning, he made a break for it and climbed up through the ceiling.

He navigated through the store's ductwork and kicked a second hole in the ceiling near the exit.

He then dropped out of the hole, ran out the front door and drove away.

Police are still searching for the suspect.
