Karma as UK thieves' stolen cash blows away in wind

Two British thieves have been caught on camera trying to make a hasty escape with a haul of cash, only for a strong gust of wind to blow it all away. 

The Greater Manchester Police have described the men as "hapless robbers" as they allegedly robbed a travel agency with cash stuffed down their pants, ABC News reports. 

One of the men tried to catch the cash, but more fell out of his pants. The pair eventually got into a getaway car and sped off, police said. 

Detective Constable Phil Scargill said "they took every step to secure the money in the shop, but left the stolen notes in their wake as they fled from the scene".

"I'd urge anyone who saw the two men, or caught sight of them dropping notes as they ran from the travel agents, to please get in touch with police and share what you know."

Police did not say how much money the pair stole, or how much was left on the street.
