Two men were arrested in New Mexico on Tuesday after they burglarized a home and tried to escape in a shopping cart.
Police say the men had burglarized a home in the northeast Albuquerque after using a bat to break a window.
They filled up a shopping cart with all the items they stole and thought they were going to get away. However, while making their escape, a neighbor happened to walk outside and spotted the men and called the cops.
After realizing that they were being followed, the men began running with the cart.
Police were able to catch the burglars and all stolen items were returned to the home owners, as the cart was found discarded and turned on its side.
A neighbor told KOAT, ‘I think it’s actually kind of pathetic that they used shopping carts instead of a car.’
The men have been charged with burglary and conspiracy.
