A would-be thief proved himself lacking in key skills like reconnaissance and driving after he tried to pull a heist beside a police-dog training site and then got stuck in the snow trying to flee.
Police in Edmonton, Alberta, said officers were training with a dog at a business late Tuesday when they heard an alarm sound from the building next door.
When they went to investigate, a car smashed through a garage door and zoomed past an officer and his dog, Wizzard, Edmonton police spokeswoman Karen Carlson said.
"He didn't get very far because he got stuck in a snow bank," Carlson said. The car turned out to be stolen.
The suspect tried to make a break for it on foot, but was quickly forced to give himself up when Wizzard caught up with him.
