CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Several burglars are truck-less after their vehicle got stuck while they were trying to steal from a business early Tuesday morning.

WSOC reports the suspects backed the truck into a Cash America Pawn Shop at about 2 a.m. in an attempt to quickly shuffle the stolen items out of the business. Instead, the truck got stuck inside the pawn shop and had to be towed out.

Police say the incident triggered alarms and authorities were quickly dispatched, but witnesses say the men couldn’t get free the truck and eventually fled the scene on foot.

Authorities are currently checking the shop’s surveillance video for evidence and the investigation is ongoing.
