VIDEO: Man breaks into animal shelter to steal gumballs

SACRAMENTO, California -- A man broke into an animal shelter in California, but he didn't try to steal cash - he tried to steal gumballs.

The man dubbed the "Gumball Bandit" struggled to drag the machine through a broken window at the shelter in Sacramento.

At one point, the gumballs spilled out and left the man with only the machine.

Eventually, the bandit brought the machine out through another exit and tossed it over a barbed wire fence.

His wild journey has gone viral.
