Man attempts to steal gumball machine in Sacramento, California

SACRAMENTO, California (NBC) - A gumball bandit blows his wad trying to steal a gumball machine in northern California.

Surveillance video from an animal shelter in Sacramento shows the story of the gumball bandit who attempted to steal the shelter’s candy machine.
The man struggles to get the machine out the door and spills gumballs everywhere.

With his eye on the wrong prize, the man completely misses the cash donation box a few feet away from him.

The man eventually tossed the gumball machine over a fence, securing the quarters inside for himself.
