Economically, South Africa is facing a difficult time and it has resulted in many people turning to a life of crime.
However, not every person is born a criminal mastermind and a group of thugs recently failed to score big during a robbery because they targeted the wrong place.
On Wednesday, six men decided to rob the Theunissen Post Office, The Citizen reported. According to the reports, the thugs waited until about 3 am before they pounced on an unsuspecting security guard.
The tied up the security guard and allegedly assaulted him before threatening to kill him if he tried to scream for help.
After taking care of the guard, the thugs followed through with their elaborate scheme- so, they used a grinder to gain access to a safe.
However, Briefly.co.za learned the robbers only found R192 in the safe because post offices do not generally keep a lot of cash lying around.
The next day, when the post office's staff arrived, the six robbers, who are wanted by the cops, became the laughing stock in town.
The staff debated whether they would divide the money equally amongst each other, which means each thug gets about R32, or would fight until one person takes home the R192.
