Ladies and gentlemen, may we present: the world's most incompetent burglar!

He shows his face before covering it. He throws a stone which fails to break the glass. And then he runs away.

It's all very, very brilliant - and ever-so-slightly Benny Hill - and as a result, we almost feel sorry for the fella.

That said: if you recognise him, you will contact Redding Police in California, won't you?
