The man forced his way into the Brisbane adult shop through the roof just before 5:30 am on Saturday, setting off the alarm.

"Upon being disturbed the man threw a number of items he was attempting to steal out of his hands and proceeded to climb back through the roof," police said in a statement.

"Police located the man climbing down from the roof of the business."

According to local media reports, the intruder was wearing a wig, crotchless pants and a dress.

He was charged with breaking and entering and drug possession offences.

"There's definitely a funny side to it," the manager, Fiona Coldrick, told The Australian newspaper.

"Obviously what he was wearing was pretty amusing.

"You've got to see the lighter side of it."

It is the second sex store robbery in northern Australia this week. 

On Thursday, a man crashed through the roof of a Cairns erotica outlet during a botched burglary, making off with a "Fantasy Fetish" pack which included a saddle. He was arrested nearby and faced court on Friday.
