The thief was so thoroughly stuck that he was only freed after passerby informed the police of his presence.
After climbing over the fence at the back of the Spar Craeghs shop in Kaulille, Belgium, at 3am on Sunday December 16 the thief climbed up bread shelves to try and escape.
Carrying a crate of 24 cans of the energy drink Monster over the fence, he quickly loses balance and gets his pants caught on the spiked railings. Having hung there for a few hours, he is set free by an unwitting passing car before making off on his bike.
Despite the initial close call, the thief returns at 5am to try, this time with his eyes on a case of Duvel, only to get caught on a different part of the fence.
The 30-year-old thief, whose cannot be named for legal reasons, was already known to the police because of his previous criminal record. The stolen beers and energy drinks were found at his house and returned to the supermarket.
