Burglars and shoplifters have been coming up with out-of-the-box ideas to successfully execute their larceny plan. Earlier a thief used a fishing rod to steal a Versace necklace. We also saw a thief dancing before breaking into a shop in Delhi.

Their idea to disguise themselves failed miserably and the two managed to grab a lot of eyeballs. Someone online also highlighted how they posed for a photograph for him on the same day when they looted the convenience store.

The incident has left people baffled and amused at the same time.

I wonder what they were thinking when they decided to ditch the mask and go for melons. What do you think of this incident? Tell us.
