It was all caught on surveillance video at The Shambles on West Division.
Owner Joe Lin says the thief had tools and was well-prepared, but something simple tripped him up.
"I don't know if he realized there was a security stick on there, because yeah, he did get confused, because he's like, 'I dismantled a lock, I should be able to get in. Why is this not working?'" said Lin.
Lin says there is a sign on the door that says "push." Apparently that's far too complicated for this guy. According to Lin, there was also an attempted break-in at a bar across the street.
Police are investigating a string of similar crimes.
