good work: thieves subdue themselves

Here is a new and novel entry into the chronicles of inept thieves.

In Poland, a pair of bank robbers burst into a bank and told the cashier to open her cash drawer. Their plan was to disable her after the drawer was opened and grab the money for themselves.

After she opened the drawer, they sprayed her with pepper spray. Unfortunately, the air conditioning vent behind her produced a gust of air that blew the pepper spray directly back into the thieves faces.

The thieves immediately started choking, fell to the ground and burst into tears. They were able to recover enough to escape, apparently without the money.

"They only managed to escape because they had a pal outside in a getaway car," a police spokesperson said.
