From the Daytona Beach News-Journal, June 11:
I’d counsel these would-be burglars, “Don’t quite your day job,” but I doubt they have day jobs.
These two non-masterminds tried to break into the Daytona Spyshop by breaking the window with a sledge hammer. Two problems with that: the window was specially designed to resist breakage, so although they struck it 56 times, they couldn’t get it; and the Daytona Spyshop, which sells hi-tech security equipment, was, of course, equipped with security cameras which recorded the entire incident. Including the make, model, and license plate number of the getaway car.
Police expect to catch them rather soon.
This caper isn’t likely to make the Sherlock Holmes casebook.
What an age we live in, where even the burglars are chuckleheads.
