A Canadian woman was caught on a surveillance camera being chased by a Walmart employee with a cart full of stolen goods, until she fell flat on her face.
Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) released footage of the female suspect bolting out of the store with stolen merchandise and attempting to make a mad dash to her car. She is seen glancing over her shoulder as the employee is hot on her heels before tripping over her own two feet and face-planting on the pavement, thus spilling the contents of her cart.
As the employee approached the woman, the defeated thief got up and retreated back to her car without the merchandise.
According to police officials, the woman attempted to make off with over $650 worth of stolen items.
Authorities also claim the woman had been at the same store days earlier and stolen over $2,500 worth of goods.
The NY Daily News reports that two men in their 30s and three women in their 20s were also accessories in both incidents and assisted the clumsy female suspect.
No arrests have been made yet. The OPP is still searching for suspects in connection with the foiled shoplifting incident.
Ontario Provincial Police describe the woman as being white, likely in her 40s, and weighing about 165 pounds. They say she has glasses, as well as a tattoo on her back, and was seen wearing a light-colored long-sleeved shirt and black pants.
