Bungling Burlgar Video Goes Viral

Mar 29, 2013 8:23 PM

Video of the bungled burglary attempt at a Redding meat market has gone viral.
Police released the video earlier this week with hopes of identifying the suspect who tried to break a glass door at Kent's Meats and Groceries on Airport Road March 5th.
He fell trying to flee when the alarm went off.
Since Action News first aired the story the video has been aired on TV stations from Seattle to Orlando, as well as on the New York Times and Huffington Post websites.
With titles like "Bungling Burglar" and "Fail of the Week"... the video clip has had thousands of hits on You Tube. Thursday night it was shown on the Jimmy Kimmel Show.
Police told Action News Friday that all the attention still hasn't helped them identify the suspect. But a store manager says business has been booming. ###
