Do you remember ever watching that show America’s Dumbest Criminals? Well, the dude in this story may fit right into that show.
In a news story that came out on Friday, July 27, 2012, the Long Island pet store Zoorama Pet Store in Elmont was robbed and the whole thing was caught on camera.
What does this have to do about pets other than it was a pet store that was robbed? Well, the man who arrived at the pet store tried to break open the register to presumably take the cash. When he failed the first time to open it, he tried it again… then again for the third time.
Apparently this cash register was computerized so it’s harder to break open. The person accused was caught on camera for the 20 minutes it took him to unsuccessfully pry it open.
What’s a guy to do right?
Well, this guy had an idea that leaves me a bit confused as to what his plan was exactly, or if he even had one.
The man was then seen cracking open one of the puppy cages that housed a 10-week old Pomeranian puppy and … stuffed it in his pants. The owner says the cage was supposed to be “thiefproof” so he was surprised to watch the assailant open the cage and walk out with the puppy in his pants.
Police are still trying to identify the person on camera and the owner of the pet store that was robbed of one of their puppies is offering an award for the pooch’s safe return.
