Man breaks into animal shelter to steal gumballs

Video 31


A man trying to steal a large bubblegum machine from an animal shelter really struggled through the process. Thankfully, security cameras were rolling and caught the whole ordeal.

Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento is asking the public’s help in finding the criminal.

The shelter put together hilarious security footage on Facebook with the caption, “Help catch the guy who stole a gumball machine from shelter pets… The Gumball Bandit faced many trials and tribulations when he broke into our shelter and stole our fund-raising gumball machine. But don’t feel too sorry for this candy crook, he did just steal from a shelter after all.”

Sneaking through a dog door, the man attempts to kick open the door from the inside to take out the machine. When that doesn’t work, he tips over the machine, hoping to fit it through the way he entered, appearing to break it and sending bubblegum all over the floor. He continues to try to fit the huge machine through the small door, breaking the machine more and slipping on bubblegum balls. He even collects some of the quarters that has fallen out of the machine– not realizing there’s a donation box full of cash a few feet away.

“What a baller (a gum baller),” the shelter jokingly writes on the video.

Realizing it’s not going to fit, he then finds another exit, where he throws the machine over a tall chain-linked and barbed-wire fence.
