DUNWOODY, Georgia — Practice makes perfect.
Police arrested a burglar in Georgia who had broken into a Target store and made off with a stack of books that teach how to be a ninja and enter into secured areas.
Christopher Zahyeer Atkins, 25, of Altamonte Springs Florida, was busted around 1 a.m. Monday as he walked away from the store with a pile of ninja books, DVDs and some electronics, the Dunwoody Police department said.
Officers had been brought there by a burglar alarm and officials at the alarm company spotted a man on security cameras attempting to get inside the store. When officers arrived, they say they spotted Atkins walking away from the shop with a bunch of things tucked under his arm.
“Officers interviewed the suspect and he admitted to making forced entry into the business because he was reading the book Naruto, Volume 5. In this book it was teaching him to be a ninja and how to enter secured areas,” the Dunwoody police department said in a post on Facebook.
Naruto is a series of Japanese manga books about a young ninja.
Atkins was arrested and charged with first degree burglary
