Clumsy burglar 'trips up' stealing golf clubs
Phoenix, AZ. (KPHO) — A burglar tripped and rolled down a residential driveway after he lost his balance carrying a bag of expensive golf clubs, Phoenix police said.
Home surveillance video provided by Phoenix police shows the suspect approaching the garage at a residence in the 26000 block of N. 64th Avenue on March 26th.
The homeowner told police he heard a noise, went outside, and saw the suspect running from his garage.
The video shows the burglar trip and fall while he was halfway down the driveway. He rolled over several times before coming to a stop by the curb. An accomplice is then seen pulling up in a Dodge Challenger or Charger with the trunk already open.
The suspect got up, stashed the "Ping" golf clubs in the trunk and jumped in the passenger's side of the getaway vehicle.
The victim took his own car and attempted to catch up to the suspect vehicle but he was unsuccessful, said Phoenix police officer James Holmes.
The victim told police he had been in his office when he saw the suspect's vehicle drive slowly past his home before the burglary.
The suspect appears to be between 18 to 25 years old. He was wearing a black shirt and black pants. He is 5'10" tall and weighs 170 pounds. He possibly had a facial injury.
Phoenix Police is asking anyone who might recognize the suspect and/or the suspect car to call Crime Stop at 602-262-6151 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
