Top 9 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Thief Smuggles Chainsaw in Pants

Other top surveillance videos of the week include a massive explosion, a broom-wielding grandmother and much more.

In this week’s Top Surveillance Videos…

A desperate thief will do anything to complete their mission… regardless of how ridiculous it may seem.

A couple weeks ago, we saw a man steal a $4K bottle of cognac by hiding it in his pants. Considering the size of the bottle, that doesn’t seem like the most absurd place to hide it.

But what if I told you there was a man that did the same exact thing… but with a chainsaw? Believe it or not, that’s exactly what happened in Fresno, Calif.

Two men entered a store — one went to the counter to distract an employee, while the other went over to a wall of chainsaws. He then grabs a chainsaw and shoves it down his pants.

Also this week…

Here’s why you never mess with a grandmother. Surveillance footage from Morocco shows a thief scaling a wall and landing on a rooftop balcony.

After rummaging around, he then picks the lock to a door and enters the home. Moments later, he comes running out of the house, being chased by a broom-wielding grandmother.

The thief attempts to climb the wall and escape but is beaten down with the broom. He shoves the elderly lady down and escapes off camera, but she would get back up and appear to be fine.

Make sure to check out the rest of this week’s top surveillance videos, which include an alleged bra thief, a restaurant shooting and more.
