A man was killed while attempting to steal money from a condom dispensing machine.
The man died after the condom machine that he was trying to break open, exploded in his face.
The 29-year-old man and his two accomplices of Germany, rigged the vending machine in Munster, with a homemade bomb so that they can explode it and steal the change from inside.
The men then ran to take cover in their vehicle. However, the victim did not close the door fast enough before the bomb exploded, and he was hit in the face by a piece of steel during the blast.
The 29-year-old man was knocked unconscious. His two accomplices, who are 27 and 29 years old, drove him to a hospital, where he died of his wounds.
At first, the men claimed that their friend had injured himself by falling down a flight of stairs.
However, police began investigating after residents alerted them to the bombed condom dispensing machine. Officers found condoms and change scattered on the street.
The thieves were too busy attending to their injured friend and did not have time to collect the money.
One of the suspects later admitted that they were connected to the exploded machine.
The two surviving suspects were arrested, and were released on bail.
