Man Goes to Great Lengths to Steal Gumball Machine From Sacramento Animal Shelter


An animal shelter in Sacramento, California, appealed for the public’s help on March 9 to find a man who broke into their shelter to steal a fund-raising gumball machine.

This footage of the incident was released by the Front Street Animal Shelter, with a running commentary of the “many trials and tribulations” the thief faced when trying to remove the machine from the building.

Within seconds, the man is seen breaking the machine, spilling hundreds of gumballs over the floor. He then tries to drag the machine through a broken window that proves too small, before taking the machine through another door and throwing it over a barbed wire fence.
