A woman face-planted into the ground while trying to steal a potted plant and it was all caught on surveillance video. 

California homeowner Crystal Barrett told KERO that she returned home a few days after being away to find one of her new planter pots smashed into pieces in her driveway. 

Barrett said she reviewed her security footage to find out what happened to her plant and found a hilarious surprise on tape. 

The video shows a vehicle pull up to her home with a woman getting out of the car. She walks towards the plant and picks it up to carry to the car.  

But the woman suddenly trips and face-plants in the driveway, instantly smashing the ceramic pot. 

The bumbling thief falls down again seconds later before making it back to her vehicle to leave the scene without the plant. 

Police have yet to identify the woman in the video.
