(Scroll down for video) A thief is being mocked over his failed robbery attempt.
Police in Queensland, Australia, have released a video of a would be thief, attempting to steal an ATM.
Police are asking people to help identify the criminal mastermind, who tried to steal an ATM on Tuesday night, but was thwarted by his own ineptitude.
The man allegedly stole a truck, dressed himself as the scarecrow from “Wizard of Oz” before driving to a gas station to steal the ATM.
The suspect broke the glass door of the gas station and pulled a rope, which was affixed to the truck inside.
He then connected the rope to the ATM and attempted to pull it out of the store by driving away.
However, his plans began to unravel when the rope tore while pulling it inside the gas station. Thinking that his mission was accomplished, the man drove off without realizing the rope has been separated.
He then drove back to the gas station in a second attempt to get ATM. However, he was unable to reconnect the rope as he parked too far from the gas station’s door.
Realizing that he had failed, the man drove off and abandoned his plans of stealing the ATM.
