Booze thief spectacularly floored

This man’s ‘sophisticated’ plan to pinch three bottles of booze from a shop in Russia was spectacularly thwarted by an unsung crime-fighter – the one way barrier.

While the man clearly put some thought into what to steal, carefully perusing the shelves, it seems he didn’t give much thought to ensuring a fool-proof getaway plan. After gathering up the goods the man is seen running head long into the shop’s sophisticated crime-prevention system – the one way barrier.

The bungling thief’s botched job was was caught on the shop’s CCTV and uploaded to YouTube.
