While most criminals try to stay away from CCTV cameras, two thugs decided they wanted to steal it.
A video was posted on social media on Monday, which showed a couple of robbers pulling up to a a nursery school on Beyers Naude drive, Johannesburg, where they stole the CCTV camera.
However, South Africans were left in stitches, dubbing the men "Joburg's dumbest criminals" since they allegedly showed up in their car, with the number plate full on display and a canoe in the trunk.
Social media users had no chill when they commented on the video and they poked fun at the criminal masterminds, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Frits Fouché commented: "Met canoe in die boot lol... when you have to steal at 12:00 but have to go fishing at 13:00 lol."
Louis Eloff added, "Dumb criminals. They thought if they steal the camera they will get the footage as well."
Ryno Botha wrote, "When you’re a criminal but fishing is life."
Tyron Jae Ferreira said, "Check the rivers...looks like they had a back-up getaway plan. Someone's been playing way to much GTA."
Ian Moolman commented: "Probably needed the money for a bottle of klipies as you can't go fishing without a klipies."
