BROCKTON, Mass., Nov. 22 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts store owner shared security camera footage of a bungling would-be thief completely failing to break into the shop.

Steven Davis, owner of 2 Debi's in Brockton, posted security camera footage to Facebook showing the attempted break-in early Sunday morning.

The video shows a man pull up to the store in a gray van, get out of the vehicle, and throw a rock at the store's glass door from only a few feet away.

The rock fails to break through the window and lands at the man's feet. He throws the rock a second time, and this time it bounces off the door and ends up under the man's van.

The suspect then gets back into the vehicle and drives away.

"The first time I saw the video I was tearing I was laughing so hard. I said this has got to be the stupidest son of a b," Davis told WFXT-TV. "He's got to be in the top five dumbest thieves I've ever seen."

Davis said he passed the footage, along with the man's license plate number, along to the local police.
