The suspect fell through the ceiling. After several hours of prying and striking the safe, the suspect was able to break it open and steal money.

YouTube video description

The Jacksonville County Sheriff`s Office posted a video on YouTube of the hapless crook falling from the ceiling of the Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in Jacksonville and ending up on his backside.

After his smooth entrance the hapless thief spent hours banging on the safe before he was finally able to pry it open.

This moron should have come equipped with a crowbar, it would have saved him a lot of time and grief. It`s a miracle he didn`t attract the attention of a passerby or a police officer in the hours he was inside the restaurant trying to pry the safe open.

This oxygen thief risked years behind bars for the payoff of a few hundred dollars at the most, if there`s a God in heaven he will soon be in Big House where his cellmate will be hard at work prying his backside open.
