Stupid criminals. We can't get enough of 'em. This one one broke into an Oklahoma drug store via the roof, and then proceed to put on a showcase of physical comedy.

After setting off the alarm with his entrance, this criminal mastermind decided the best course of action was to escape the way he came. While that's stupid on its own, it got that much more ridiculous when his attempts at climbing through the ceiling were thwarted by his own clumsiness, as he proceeded to fall off his ladder seven times, all of which were caught by this lucky security camera.

What boggles me is this: If breaking through the roof already set off the alarm, why not just use the doors on your way out? The damage has been done, sir. Exiting through the roof doesn't turn it off - going backwards does not reverse time. Use the doors! If they're locked from the inside, just remind yourself that you're ALSO ON THE INSIDE. Bah.

Anyway, we weren't the only ones who found this man's stupidity incredibly entertaining. The anchor during the news report cannot get through the story without cracking up. Rightfully so. The guy fell SEVEN TIMES! He has every right to lose it on-air.
