WATCH: Man fails ‘mission impossible’ style burglary of Qld store

A man has been filmed trying to rob a Chermside computer business, however he appears to have failed at his attempt, becoming tangled in his own mess.

Police say the man entered the business from the roof around 1.00am on March 7 and lowered “mission impossible” style by a rope tied to his foot.

CCTV footage then shows the would-be thief tripping on his own rope, causing him to stumble and fall heavily onto the ground, losing his shoe on the way.


After conducting a quick search of the business he can be seen lifting himself back up into the roof, leaving without any property.

Anyone who has any information that may be able to assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
