Man Breaks Into Australian Museum and Takes Selfies Inside Dinosaur's Mouth

Australian police appealed for information from the public after a man broke into a museum, stole a staffer’s cowboy hat, and took selfies with his head in a dinosaur skeleton’s mouth in Sydney, New South Wales, on May 10.

The suspect broke into the Australian Museum in Sydney’s central business district and wandered through multiple levels, attempting to gain access to rooms, the New South Wales Police Force said in a statement.

The suspect took a selfie inside a dinosaur’s mouth before stealing a staff member’s cowboy hat and leaving. He was in the building for approximately 40 minutes, police said.

The man was described as Caucasian in appearance, with dark hair, and aged in his early 20s. He was wearing a denim button-up shirt, jeans, and black shoes.

Police urged anyone who may have information about the man’s identity, or who were in the area at the time of the break-in, to come forward.

The museum, which, like all Australian museums, has been closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19, has also been undergoing a renovation, according to its website. Credit: New South Wales Police Force via Storyful
