Worlds Dumbest Criminals
Ever seen those shows about the worlds dumbest criminals?
We have our own footage of an attempted break in at one of our neighbors' buildings across the street.
A couple weeks ago these guys stole the hose on the front of our office building. Imagine our surprise when our neighbors wanted to retrieve footage from a surveillance system we installed for them a long time ago.
I think I'll call these guys the "bike boneheads". I uploaded a six minute video which shows this dynamic duo work together as one guy climbs up the ladder and tries to steal a surveillance camera. His partner stays on the street as a lookout, and after 4 or 5 tries... finally throws up the correct tool enabling his buddy to cut the surveillance camera wires.
Fortunately we had the camera tampered and integrated with the alarm system. In this particular installation, the exterior alarm siren was right by the ladder and camera!
As soon as bonehead #1 tries to steal the camera, the alarm is triggered and rings right in his face!... Must of scared the crap out of him!
Watch as he falls down the ladder and they take off on their getaway bikes.... they probably stole those too! (Its about 3 minutes into the video if you want to skip to the good stuff)!
