AURORA, CO (WTAT-TV) — It’s video you’ve got to see to believe! A bumbling bandit was caught on camera dropping his gun during a robbery attempt.

The crook, wearing a hat, sunglasses and a hoodie, walked into an e-cigarette store in Aurora, Colorado Sunday night.

He starts to pull out his gun, but drops it onto the counter instead!

The gun then bounced off the counter and onto the floor behind the clerk.

She picked the gun up as the bumbling bandit attempted to jump the counter, but he decided to run away instead.

“My first reaction was obviously scared, but then I had to laugh at how it all took place,” said store owner, Chris Burgess.

Turns out, it was only a BB gun.

Burgess said police likely pulled the bandit’s fingerprints off the gun. His message to that suspect: get a job!
