Fumbling thief Bruce Bishop, 35, raided £500 in change from Gala Bingo in Hereford.
But he got caught after coins started to fall from his pocket, leading the manager of the bingo hall directly to him, where he was found scrambling in the street, trying to pick up the dropped change.
He returned the loot and pleaded guilty at Hereford Magistrates' Court, where he will be sentenced later this month.
It seems his crime was weighing heavily on him!
