GLADSTONE, Ore. - An Oregon man's apparent attempt to steal a bike from a police station went about as badly as you'd expect.
Police said Adam Valle, 26, was caught on surveillance video Thursday using bolt cutters to try to steal the bike, which was chained in front of the Gladstone Police Department, KOIN reported.
He was caught within seconds, police said.
"It's dumb, you know," Gladstone police Sgt. Carl Bell said in an ABC News interview. "I have not actually seen something that blatant because the officers were inside watching on video camera."
On Monday, police shared the surveillance footage on Facebook, where it quickly went viral. By Wednesday morning, the clip had racked up more than 263,000 views and 2,500 shares.
"Suspect arrested for attempting to steal a bike...From the PD!!!!" the post read. "SGT Okerman arrested the suspect after confronting him with a Taser."
