A sloppily executed crime in Baltimore County this morning left two burglars with no spoils and police officers on the chase.

The above photo says it all. According to Baltimore County police, two men drove the pictured red Chevrolet Conversion van into the front window of the T-Mobile store at Milford Mill Shopping Center just before 6 a.m. The men then jumped out to rob the store, only to find they hadn’t managed to really break in.

The key was the security gate: Police say it protected the front window and entrance, preventing the vehicle from breaking through.

The men were seen fleeing toward a nearby Exxon, leaving behind the van. Police later found it’d been reported stolen.

The real victims here were people who wanted to shop at T-Mobile today. Police said it had to close “since the van penetrated the picture window,” police said. Luckily, fire investigators found no structural damage that would make the area unsafe for shoppers.

Police didn’t offer any suspect descriptions. Officers from the Pikesville precinct are now investigating.
