VIDEO: Two customers in Laois pub try to rob bottle of spirits; get caught rotten by the owner behind them
And they would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for that pesky owner... and the CCTV camera.
A couple of customers in Moloney’s Gaelic Bar in Mountmellick thought they had pulled off the perfect crime yesterday, only to be caught in the act by the one person you don’t want catching you.
John Edward Moloney from the bar posted a video of two customers seemingly concocting a plan to rob a bottle of spirits from behind the bar and eventually doing so, only to have it taken back from them seconds later by the owner of the bar, former TD John Moloney senior.
Any one know these 2 "gents" ???? Thinking the coast is clear but not realising the owner is behind you.

As crimes go, it wasn’t the most expertly-executed one and if the presence of the bar owner wasn’t enough, the devious duo were captured on CCTV in a video that has already been viewed over 15,500 times on Facebook at the time of writing.
