Police hope to identify two bumbling thieves who attempted to steal a truck at a metro dealership.

The Oklahoma City Police Department released surveillance video of two thieves stealing a truck March 27 from Reynolds Ford, 7320 Northwest Expressway.

As the men attempt to get in the truck they unlock the transmission, causing it to roll backwards in neutral. One of the thieves holds on to the truck and attempts to open the door while the other began shooting the windows with a BB gun.

The truck eventually comes to a stop and the two later stole it off the lot.

Anyone with information on the men is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
