8. Burglars Break Into a Warehouse So They Can Steal Some Boots, and Then Leave the Boots They Came to Steal

A regular Ocean's Eleven, these people. Three unidentified burglars -- two women and one man -- took a sledgehammer to the concrete wall of the Coastal Boots warehouse in Pompano Beach, working slowly and meticulously to smash open a hole big enough to fit through.

Once inside, they disabled the alarm and nabbed themselves a shoebox with a pair of work boots valued at $200.

According to surveillance footage, the three then inexplicably began running around the warehouse with the sledgehammer and the shoebox.

They then jumped into their getaway car, possibly a white Chrysler 300, with a fourth accomplice.

And, apparently, they left without their sledgehammer.

And the work boots.


7. Suspected Terrorists in Boca Turn Out to Be a Bunch of Comic Con Nerds

Quick, Robin! To the nerd cave!

Several men in military-style garb and armor, armed with machine guns and various weapons, were spotted on the roof of a parking lot in Boca Raton. Alarmed onlookers immediately called police, who rushed to the scene. Once there, they converged on the armed men and drew their firearms, demanding the would-be terrorists to lay down their weapons and drop to the ground.

Turns out, the armed men were nothing but a handful of nerds prepping for a photo shoot for an upcoming Comic Con with prop guns.

Worst. Photo shoot. Ever.
