A BIZARRE video reveals the second two pilfering punters pinch a pair of expensive putters from a swanky golf store – by stuffing them down one among their trouser legs.
The dopey duo have been captured by CCTV cameras at Ferndown Forest Golf Membership in Bournemouth, Dorset on Sunday making the brazen theft from the membership store.
With putters on the Royal Winchester Store starting from £97 to a whopping £239, the 2 seem like reluctant to half with money, as an alternative choosing their questionable heist.
The clip opens with the 2 males wandering across the store beneath the guise of shopping its cabinets and show racks.
One of many males then slyly picks up a set of putters from the stand and locations them to 1 aspect, leaning them in opposition to the hat rack.
His confederate then circles spherical and picks up the golf equipment in a stance just like that of a soldier with a rifle earlier than he helps himself to a five-finger low cost.
The person, wearing a navy jumper and checked shirt, then lifts his prime and begins sliding the golf equipment into his trouser leg.
After a bit wiggling and a few assist from his shoplifting sidekick, he efficiently shops each golf equipment at his aspect, apparently blatantly unaware of the CCTV digital camera proper above each of them.
The unidentified man then lifts his shirt and jumper over the stolen items to attempt to conceal them, earlier than the pair go searching for just a few extra seconds.
Showing shifty as they scan for any witnesses, the 2 then head for the exit, with one hilariously hobbling away because of the golf equipment caught to the aspect of his leg.
