When you have to obliterate your car for a score, maybe that's a good sign you shouldn't be stealing. Two thieves in England didn't learn that lesson when they wrecked their car trying to steal a parking meter. To add insult to the car's injury, one of the thieves was picked up right away and eventually found guilty for theft, criminal damage, and dangerous driving. 

Luckily for us (and the cops) video captures the struggle. The thieves ended up causing more damage to the park than was even in the meter. Add in the damage to the car and you have a terrible fail in thievery.
