Denver police received some unsuspecting help in their efforts to catch an intruder — from the suspect himself.

According to KCNC-TV, a man walked into a home through the back door about 9:20 p.m. on Jan. 29, took a selfie of himself on the woman’s phone, then left the residence without taking a single thing.

Now, authorities are using the picture of the man — who bears an uncanny resemblance to “Breaking Bad’s” Walter White — to ask the public for help locating him.

“[H]e looks familiar to me, everybody else says they didn’t see him but he looks familiar to me, I know I’ve seen him before,”  neighbor Richard Gardner told KCNC-TV.

“He doesn’t have glasses when you normally see him walking down the street,” he added. “Maybe they’re a disguise. I don’t know.”

The victim’s husband said that was the only picture the suspect appeared to take of himself. According to KCNC-TV, the woman didn’t even know the man had been inside her home until she discovered the photo the next day.
