Playing Watch as Shatter-Proof Glass Sends Would-Be Thieves Packing

Surveillance footage from a Mobil station shared by the Port St. Lucie Police Department shows two suspects as they attempted to force their way inside the store early Tuesday morning.

When one suspect used a hammer to try and break through the door, the glass fractures but holds strong. 

After several unsuccessful hits with the hammer, the suspect then rammed his body into the shattered door but was still unsuccessful in gaining entry, Port St. Lucie police said in a statement.

The second suspect also used a hammer to attempt to gain entry, but was also unable to penetrate the glass.

The problem? It was impact-resistant glass.
