A masked man faced a series of setbacks while allegedly trying to steal a gumball machine from an animal shelter - and they were all caught on camera.
The alleged thief was dubbed one of "Sacramento’s dumbest criminals" following his woeful attempts to take the candy dispenser in California, US.
His struggles apparently started immediately when he grabbed the machine after crawling into the rescue centre through an opening in the door.
Bizarre CCTV shows the top of the machine falling to the ground as he tilts it sideways in an apparent attempt to push back through the space.
