Darren Durrant was shown on CCTV at the True Value Store on 2 February.
The 46-year-old can be seen walking into the shop with a crutch - before taking a pair of cutting tools and removing the security tag on a Ravin Rio crossbow.
He can then be seen shoving the weapon down the front of his trousers before walking out.
Amazingly he made it out of the shop, but was arrested a few days later in the car park of a nearby store.
An arrest warrant has been issued by Brevard County for Durrant, who is currently in custody on unrelated burglary charges.
