Burglar's disguise -- underpants

FRUITLAND, Idaho, May 20 (UPI) -- Security footage at a Fruitland, Idaho, coffee shop caught two robbers making off with a safe -- one of them wearing underwear on his head as a disguise.

Eight security cameras at the Big Star Coffee Shop caught the robbery on tape around 4:34 a.m. Friday, The Idaho Statesman reported. Two men busted in, one with a bandana over his face, the other hiding behind a pair of undies.

"They kicked in the back door and went right for the safe," said owner Jason Wilson, who suspects one of the culprits to be a disgruntled former employee.

Their plan came up short when they found the big safe, weighing more than 200 pounds and bolted into cement, was impossible to steal. Instead they made off with a smaller safe containing less than $500.

"Who robs something with underwear on their head?" Wilson riddled. "I think the underwear shows they're not the smartest criminals -- or the most well-prepared."

An employee discovered the robbery at 5:30 a.m., after the masterminds left considerable evidence at the scene. Police were investigating.
