Is this Lemony Snicket, the black version?

Fresh from our "We're not making this up" file, three U.S. military soldiers were busted early Saturday during an attempt to rob a medical marijuana dispensary in Colorado, local police said. The "bumbling trio," who are active-duty soldiers from Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, managed to break into the Rocky Road Remedies facility but became trapped after the pot shop's doors locked from the inside, police said. Darius Thomas, 23, Cory Young, 22, and Ramone Holling, 22, were arrested on suspicion of second-degree burglary, ABC reported. They are being held on $10,000 bail. Security footage of the break-in showed three people dressed in black suits and masks scampering around the shop in a panic, running between rooms, climbing through windows and trying to smash their way out. Guess who caught them? The police officers stationed next door. Is that circus music we hear in the background? These clowns are  protecting our country? They definitely don't make good soldiers or criminals. Maybe they'll make better prisoners.
