Would Be Thief Gets Nothing At Center City Donut Shop

Most of the time criminals are stupid . This is one of those times. It was at 11:45 PM when the male in the below video walked up to the Dunkin Donuts store on the 2100 block of Market Street. It was closed but that did not deter this guy, who ripped open the front doors by pulling on them. Once inside he got right to work.


There was nothing to eat in the store. He did not want food, he wanted the cash that was in the safe.  He tried to pull open the safe and it would not budge. He tried to break the safe and still nothing. The odds were not in his favor as the police would soon be there, so he ran out of the store the same way he got in. He did the walk of shame empty handed.


Now police want to hear from you if you know who he is. He made a halfhearted attempt to cover his face with a Covid mask, which does not do a good job. Someone knows him.
