Kidding. He botched the robbery of a porn shop.

According to the report, the burglar alarm sounded after the glass doors of Cirilla’s adult entertainment store were smashed. Police found Aguirre riding his bike not far from the break-in. In the basket of his bike they found, the head of a sledge hammer tied to a rope, along with empty DVD cases.
