When breaking into other people’s businesses in order to steal their takings, or other ‘things’ then burglars can expect zero sympathy from most people when it alls goes a bit wrong.
And quite often things DO go wrong.
Which will come as a nice surprise to most people who are outside of the emergency services fraternity and who may not be aware of just how often criminals end up wishing they had made better life decisions.
And here we have one such example, caught on camera, of when things do go wrong for criminals.
In this particular case, a burglar was trying to break into a restaurant and attempted to smash a window using a break.
But the ‘technique’ backfired when the brick decided to bounce straight back into the face of the suspect.
According to detectives in Prince George’s County (US), the suspect threw a brick at the restaurant located in the 4000 block of Suitland Road on September 20, and successfully shattered the front glass window.
But when he tried to use that same brick or rock in an attempt to break the bulletproof glass that protected the front counter three times, police say the brick or rock flew back at him and appeared to hit him in the head on the third try.
After being hit in the head, police say the suspect fell to the ground and laid there for a few minutes before eventually getting up and leaving the business.
In the footage shared on Emergency Services News, you can see the suspect throw the brick at the reinforced glass at which point the brick comes hurtling back towards the suspect before he ends up on the floor.
Oh dear. Such a shame. Never mind.
Moral of the story? If you don’t want to get a brick in your face whilst breaking into someone’s business, then don’t break into someone’s business.
