WATCH IT: Worst robber ever fails in spectacular fashion

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

This man may be the worst robber — and possibly the worst dresser – utterly failing while surveillance cameras recorded the whole thing for police and the Internet.

Watch as he approaches a grocery store in Redding, California.

He first cases the place while the store’s camera gets a good shot of his face.

He then ducks behind the corner and puts a stocking over his face (to hide his identity).

His identity secure, he whips a rock at the glass but appears to scare himself in the process.  The bumbling thief takes off, tripping over a handicap parking spot — twice.

Chances are this guy will be trading in his polka dots for prison stripes real soon.
