Clumsy thief fails to conceal face with head pan in robbery attempt

This is the hilarious video of a clumsy thief making a futile attempt to conceal his face before staring into a CCTV camera.

The man tried to break into a few shops in Ahmednagar district in Central India on February 5.

Knowing that there were CCTV cameras to deter theft attempts, he tried to cover his face with a head pan used by construction workers.

To check where the CCTV cameras were hung, he removed the head pan for a moment and looked around, but ended up staring straight into one of the cameras, revealing his face.

Realising that his game was up, the man made a retreat carefully keeping his face covered with a pan.

Local police said the man had left without breaking into shops but is now in their wanted list.
