World's Dumbest Criminal: Police Mock Failed Gas Station Robbery (VIDEO)

A thief in Australia looking to steal an ATM from a gas station came away empty-handed after the robbery didn’t quite go according to plan. Police from the state of Queensland posted a video showing criminal’s misadventure – adding a theme tune.

The offender arrived at the gas station in a stolen pick-up truck and seemed to be initially well-prepared for the operation. Out came a slab of concrete and a hammer to smash in the door to the store in the northern city of Townsville.

The criminal also took care to ensure it would be as difficult as possible to identify (presumably) him, wearing a hat with dangling mesh to cover the face.

The target was a cash machine inside and the robber released a strong metal chain attached to the back of the truck. He proceeded to drag it into the store and attach it round the ATM, with the aim of hauling it out using his vehicle.

However, this is when things started to go wrong. The thief forgot to test the strength of the link holding the two chains together. When a little bit of pressure was applied the chains came apart.

This is sooo bad...
