Canadaâ€™s candidate for â€˜dumbest criminal everâ€™ was arrested Tuesday afternoon, after returning to the bank he had just attempted to rob.
The 39-year-old man entered a downtown Victoria bank early that morning, and told the teller he was attempting a robbery. Apparently insecure in his chosen vocation, he then asked her for feedback on how the robbery was going.

When she remained silent â€“ and made no move to hand over the cash â€“ he quickly fled the scene.
He was apprehended by police just a couple of hours later, when the same teller spotted him peering in the window as police conducted their investigation.
The peeping tom was compared with images on the bankâ€™s security cameras of the would-be thief, and promptly arrested.
