Two men tried to use chewing gum to cover up a security camera at a Greenfield bar as they broke into an amusement machine.

The Edge Sports Bar released video of the two men sticking the gum on the camera’s lens as they broke into the machine, but the two didn’t realize there was more than one camera pointed at it.

The bar posted pictures on Facebook in hopes someone will recognize them.

Greg Grabowski, the owner of the bar, said the man took cash from the machine, bought a bag of chips, and then left.

“He literally looked in the camera for I would say for 30 seconds and gave me an opportunity to pick what still I wanted to use," Grabowski said.

“Not the most brilliant thing but whatever,” he also said.
