    Gold Coast blokes thwart bumbling thieves during Oporto robbery

    A COUPLE of Gold Coast blokes have thwarted would-be robbers and filmed the entire dramatic encounter overnight.

    James Ross-Munroe and Kane Wiblen found themselves in the right place at the wrong time at an Arundel service station late last night when thieves broke into an Oporto shop.

    But instead of standing idly by, Mr Ross-Munroe — who had just ‘busted a plugga’ (broken his thongs) — ran over to the white Commodore getaway car — which had no registration plates.

    A shirtless Mr Ross-Munroe took the keys from the ignition while the thieves were still in the Marble Arch Place shop.

    When the bandits reappeared and jumped in the car, Mr Ross-Munroe lept in after them, throwing several punches and yelling obscenities to the men as they took off on foot.

    He and Mr Wiblen gave chase but the robbers got away.

    The pair immediately posted the vision on Facebook saying ‘The moment we caught two blokes breaking into Oportos Arundel, they ran inside so I took their keys out of the ignition.”

    “When the driver came back to the car he realised his keys were missing, the passenger jumped in and I managed to land a few punches ...

    “I chased them but because I’m fat they got away.”


    The video has since been shared hundreds of times with friends commenting that they are heroes.

    Gold Coast police confirmed the robbery saying both robbers fled west along Brisbane Road toward Helensvale

    Police have a 23-year-old man in custody but are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    Australians are the greatest. All that's missing in this video are a couple of kangaroos joining in on the chase.

    Commodores are awesome cars. It's a shame GM killed Pontiac, it was the closest we were ever going to come to getting them in the US.

    I wonder how long this vertical video nonsense is going to go on?

    It's already been going on for years and people still haven't figured out what they're doing wrong - or that they're doing something wrong.

    Don't they watch they're own videos after they upload them? Don't they say to themselves, "I wonder where those black bars on the side are coming from?" Or do they not have enough sense to turn the camera 90 degrees to watch videos online?

    It wouldn't matter. They'd still be too fucking dumb to know that the secret to a good video is holding the fucking camera steady. You'd think even the dumbest asshole could figure that out, but all you have to do is watch any video uploaded on YouTube to realize to see they can't.
