Video Shows Pathetic Robbery Attempt Thwarted by Glass Door


Two suspects were stopped dead in their tracks when they tried to break into a Florida gas station on Tuesday. What elaborate, high-tech security system kept them out, after repeated attempts to get in? A glass door.

Security video from a Mobil gas station in Port St. Lucie shows two individuals approach the automatic doors at the store entrance. One of them can be seen striking one of the impact-resistant glass panels with an object, causing damage but not breaking through. The suspect can then be seen futilely kicking, punching, and hurling himself at the glass repeatedly, but to no avail. The other suspect joins in and doesn’t do any better.

Their identities remain unknown, as they both soon gave up and fled from the scene empty handed.
