The search for a thief who stole an 86-pound bucket of gold flakes has expanded to Florida.

Security cameras captured images of the man as he took the bucket containing nearly $1.6 million in gold from the back of an armored truck parked on a Manhattan street on Sept. 29.

Police say the thief lugged the gold flakes up the street, taking an hour to complete what would normally be considered a 10-minute walk. He then hopped into a white van and fled.

Police say the suspect likely didn't know what the bucket contained.

The suspect is believed to be hiding out in either Miami or Orlando.
