Security footage has captured what appears to be the world’s dimmest burglar in action.

The video shows the man, dressed in dark jeans and a hoodie, approach a garage and try to find a way in.


First he checks the door, only to find it locked. He then begins prying open one of the windows and makes his way inside.

However, he somehow fails to realise that the garage is actually open, and if he had just looked around the corner he would have been able to walk straight in.

After realising his embarrassing mistake, the burglar strolls out again empty-handed.

He tries the side door one more time, only to find that – strangely – it’s still locked.

Realising his efforts were a waste of time, the would-be thief walks away from the property.
