Houston’s “inchworm bandits” create performance art while robbing restaurants on their bellies


CCTV footage from a wave of after-hours robberies in Houston has birthed a viral sensation, thanks to the robbers’ tactic of commando-crawling on the floor, which has led to them being dubbed the “inchworm bandits.”

It’s possible they’re doing this to avoid having their heights, gaits, and faces captured by security cameras, but it’s also a fascinating piece of performance art.
