An apparently firearm-wielding man has tried to break an inmate out of an Isle of Wight prison – while wearing a Snoopy costume.
Accompanied by a non-costumed sidekick, the bungling pair broke into the Albany section of Her Majesty’s Prison in an attempt to release a family member – who, unfortunately, was located on another site.
After failing to break through a locked door, the two resorted to throwing concrete at staff cars.
When police arrested the two on charges of criminal damage, it became apparent that Snoopy’s gun was in fact a water pistol. Both have been detained under the Mental Health Act.
"It’s not every day you see a giant cartoon dog go on the rampage after trying to break into prison," a prison insider told The Sun.
"This has got to rank as one of the worst attempted jail breaks ever."
