The hapless thief was caught when he attempted to make his getaway from a bank robbery with a bag stuffed full of cash – £120,000 worth in total.
Unfortunately for the bank robber, the bag full of money was so heavy that it destabilized the motorcycle, causing him to lose his balance and fall off the vehicle.
Assuming the cash was in the local currency, it would have totaled around 280,000 Bulgarian leva – a currency in which the largest denomination is 100 leva note.
The wobbly villain was quickly detained by the Bulgarian authorities.
Things went from bad to worse for the criminal gang, when shortly afterwards the robber’s accomplice was also arrested – when he couldn’t restart his motorbike after it had helpfully stalled right in front of a police station in the town of Petrich, in southwest Bulgaria near the Macedonian-Greek border.
