Authorities in Westland, Michigan, are looking for a clumsy crook who managed to upset a whole display case over himself during a robbery.

The CCTV footage was shared in hopes of identifying the bungling criminal, and it has left plenty of netizens very amused.

In the video, the man, dressed in a tan-coloured jacked with khaki pants, is seen entering the store and grabbing multiple cell phones. In one instance, as he attempts to pull out a off of its security device from a shelf, the whole display case topples and falls over him.
