A man is facing jail time after police say he crawled through a vent to get into an adult entertainment store Tuesday night and then took off with sex toys.

Ellis Doyle allegedly broke in through the roof and crawled through a vent to get into Cirilla's on Midway Boulevard in Elyria.

Police say Doyle stole sex toys, mannequins and wigs worth thousands of dollars. The store caught him on their surveillance cameras and, after seeing what he was wearing and photos of what he stole, police were able to track him down. 

After searching the area next to the store by the Red Roof Inn, police found the mannequin and some other items that were taken from the store. 

Elyria police say that it is a fifth-degree felony, and Doyle could face jail time.
