(BlackMediaScoop) What is the deal with would-be burglars not executing the getaway plan? LOL!
Manuel Fernandes is suspected of trying to rob a Rent-A-Center in Boston but he NEVER made it inside his intended target, and instead had the misfortune of getting stuck under a loading bay door.
The 53 year old almost-thief was discovered early the next morning by an employee, and told the worker that he’d been lying underneath the door since about midnight, say cops.
“He tried to pry open the garage door with a metal bed post.
Once cops arrived on the scene and freed the man, “he was brought out of that position and complained of a headache,” and was taken to the hospital with a large bruise on the back of his head.
And of course, warn cops — don’t try this move at home. Or at any other place with a loading bay door you shouldn’t be prying open in the first place.
“It could have been a fatal situation if more momentum had occurred so I don’t recommend that for anyone to try,” said the detective.
The man will be charged with breaking and entering and malicious damage to property.
