New Hampshire authorities are searching for a man who allegedly tried to steal several drills from a hardware store, only to make chicken noises and run away.

Employees at the Sears hardware store in Concord told police that the man had placed four DeWalt drills inside a shopping cart. He then tried to leave the store without paying for the drills.

"When store employees tried to stop this subject, he made what they described as 'chicken noises' and fled on foot, leaving the drills behind," police said in a statement.

The drills are valued at approximately $900.

The police statement describes the suspect as "being between the ages of 25 and 35 years-old. He appeared to be a white male, wearing a black long sleeve shirt and jeans or possibly sweatpants. He also appeared to be wearing some sort of flip-flop type shoes."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Concord Regional Crimeline at (603) 226-3100.
