BOGORODITSK, Russia, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Russian police said they locked up two alleged burglars who broke into the wrong store after botching a stick-up at a cafe earlier in the day.

The two 33-year-old suspects were nabbed after setting off a burglar alarm at a lingerie shop in Bogoroditsk, outside Moscow, Thursday night.

Although the suspects came away empty-handed in both incidents, they will be charged with robbery, the local branch of the Interior Ministry said in a written statement.

The suspects admitted to officers they had planned to clean out a cellphone shop next door but became confused in the darkness and broke into the lingerie store instead.

Police told the RIA Novosti news agency the pair had tried to rob a cafe earlier in the day, but the cashier ran off and took refuge in a beauty salon next door.
