Thief Struggles Immensely After Trying To Steal TV Then Realises It Won't Fit In Car

Thief Struggles Immensely After Trying To Steal TV Then Realises It Won't Fit In Car

Go and steal that TV, they said. No one will know, they said - oh wait...

That was probably the idea, until this opportunistic thief decided to mess everything up, making a complete and utter muppet out of himself on the way. Good going, mate.

This guy had definitely gone all in when he parked on the driveway of a house in George's County, Maryland, where a delivery firm had left a huge TV on someone's doorstep.

We don't know what's worse here - the little guy trying to nick the 65-inch bad boy or the delivery guys for leaving it in plain sight of, well, everyone.

The best bit has to be the fact that the entire thing had been caught on CCTV, allowing us to reel in his failed attempts at being a proper robber.

The thief grabbed what is believed to be a Sharp Aquos 4K Ultra HD TV, according to the MailOnline, which sounds impressive - right?

As he tries to carry the huge box to his getaway vehicle he stumbles, dropping the TV and falling over it himself on to the front garden of the house.

In a quick attempt to chuck it in the back of the car he realises that the boot will be a much easier option - but then it dawns on him that it won't fit in there either.

And at this stage we're not shocked in the slightest at how much of an idiot this chap really is.

Reconsidering his method (again) he shoves the TV in the back of the car with it sticking out halfway.

With the boot and the back door still open, this smart arse jumped into the car and sped off probably feeling really smug about his accomplishment.

Speaking to NBC, the homeowner (and nearly new TV owner) Marsedah Diggs said: "It was ridiculous. Everyone else who saw the video was laughing at the time. I wasn't laughing."

Marsedah, who ordered the TV from Walmart added: "He's an idiot. He's an idiot. That's all I can say, and I hope he broke that TV into a thousand pieces by the time he got it to his destination."

Moral of the story kids - if you're going to rob something make sure you can do it as smoothly as possible. Or, even better, don't be a twat and steal other people's belongings?
