A ridiculous-looking thief has become the butt of jokes online for creeping up a driveway looking like ‘a cartoon burglar’ unaware his every tentative step was being recorded by CCTV.
Police have released footage of the crook precariously tiptoeing onto the property while his accomplice follows behind, before the pair steal a petrol generator from outside the Derbyshire property. Web users were quick to mock the crook for his sneaky ‘Pink Panther-style’ approach to the crime scene blissfully unaware he was being recorded by security cameras.
Vicky Louise wrote on Facebook: ‘What a fool. Creeping along looking like a cartoon burgler[sic] while clearly in the open. Matter of time before before you get caught mate.’
Carl Rose added: ‘Hilarious. Looks more like a scene from the Pink Panther or Scooby Doo. Seriously tho, hope you catch him.’ Neil Harper referenced the pranks pulled by Jeremy Beadle in his 1990s TV show, writing: ‘Is this a joke looks like something off Beadle,’ while January Lloyd branded them ‘Dumb and dumber.’
