Hapless Burglar Has Trouble Getting Out Of Storeroom

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Australian police said they arrested a burglar who was nearly trapped in a locked storeroom when he crawled through a skylight.


Investigators said the 19-year-old man, whose name was not released, broke into a shop in Frankston through a skylight and soon found he was unable to open the storeroom door or climb back to the ceiling, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Tuesday."


This hapless burglar doesn`t understand the basics of physics, it`s simple to jump down into a room from the roof, but it`s impossible to jump out of the room.

Video surveillance tape capture the imbecile stacking containers and falling off them several times before he finally escaped. This oxygen thief must be red in the face, and black and blue on the rest of his body.

The dumb crook turned himself in after the cops released an image of his face from the security footage.

For his next caper, this clown should attempt something a wee bit easier, maybe stealing candy from a baby.
