Bumbling thieves sought in Perth

April Fools’ Day was aptly named for two West Australian men, who were caught on CCTV fumbling a break-in on 1 April.

The pair, armed with a hammer, smashed the doors of a shopping centre on the Albany Highway at about 2.30am before forcing their way into a jewellery shop within the complex.

Footage shows one man driving a getaway motorcycle inside the building, while the other carries the stolen goods before dropping and spilling them on the ground outside as he runs away.

The thief attempts to pick up some of the items before jumping on the back of the bike and driving off with the accomplice, leaving jewellery strewn across the carpark.

The individuals wore motorcycle helmets throughout the incident, and police have appealed for more information.
