Stupid Criminals: Would-be car thieves

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - A trio of would-be Massachusetts car thieves had to hit the brakes on their plan because none of them knew how to drive a stick.
 
Police in Springfield say the men pulled a knife on a food delivery driver Tuesday night and demanded the grub and his keys. But then they noticed the car had a manual transmission.
 
Sgt. John Delaney tells The Republican newspaper the thieves argued among themselves then ran down the street with their ill-gotten dinner.
 
The driver was not seriously hurt. There have been no arrests.
