It’s simply an unfortunate fact that sometimes, people must resort to nefarious and sometimes dangerous means to get what they want. Often, this means hurting people or destroying other people’s property for personal gain.

One man in Parkland, Washington tried very hard to get into a closed restaurant in the early hours one morning, but wasn’t able to. His fail was caught on the surveillance camera, and then the footage released to the public. 

In the clip, which you can watch below, the man tries to break open a rear door window with the rock, but is unsuccessful. He proceeded to kick and bodyslam the door until he was finally able to worm his way in.

Once inside, the man attempted to steal from the cash register, but wasn’t able to pry it open. And then, instead of exiting from when he came, he climbed out a roof vent and ran away.

The man clearly failed at burglarizing this restaurant, but authorities are warning that he may have robbed stores in the past, and may still attempt to steal from other businesses.

Pierce County Sheriff’s Department is asking anyone with information about this man to call (253) 798-7530.

Please SHARE to spread the word about this criminal, but also if you were highly amused by his failed robbery!
