London, May 10 (ANI): Cops in the UK have arrested a man who was trying to break into a prison after slipping into a Snoopy costume.
Jail workers were shocked when they found the Peanuts character waving a gun.
However, when the comic-strip beagle and his sidekick could not break down a staff door, they pelted prison officers' cars with stones.
"It's not every day you see a giant cartoon dog going on the rampage after trying to break into a prison," the Sun quoted a prison service source, as saying.
The insider added: "They weren't exactly inconspicuous - but it was taken seriously because they appeared to have a gun. They caused a real commotion and it was only later they were found to be armed with a water pistol."
After the duo were collared by the police, it emerged that they had targeted the wrong jail.
Snoopy and his accomplice had tried to get into HMP Isle of Wight's Albany site while the family member they wanted to free was banged up in the complex's Camp Hill jail.
The source said: "They are very close together but this has got to rank as one of the worst attempted jail breaks ever." (ANI)
