Burglar Bursts Through YMCA Ceiling, Steals Toy Money

Who's he trying to kid?

It wasn’t just the money that was funny.

A dimwitted burglar was caught on camera crashing through a YMCA’s ceiling before making off with fake money from inside a toy cash register, KESQ-TV reported.

Surveillance video captured the bizarre Sept. 10 theft at the YMCA Doris Mechanick Child Development Center in Indio, outside Palm Springs, California.

A dimwitted burglar was filmed clearing a toy cash register of all its play money during a break-in earlier this month in southern California.

In the video, the suspect can be seen dropping into the dark playroom before grabbing at the toy. After emptying its contents the man makes a run for it down a lit hallway.

Damage to the building’s ceiling and air conditioner from the break-in have since been repaired, management told the local station. The register has also been refilled.

As of Monday, no arrests have been made in the case, police told The Huffington Post.
