    Honolulu police posted security camera video on YouTube of suspects stealing a moped on June 17.

Honolulu police are asking for the public’s help in finding some clumsy moped thieves.

Police said that at about 3:52 a.m. on June 17, the suspects placed a moped in a pickup truck and drove off.

They posted security camera video on the Honolulu Police Department YouTube channel that shows the suspects arriving in two vehicles. As they are leaving, at about 3:52:25 on the video, one of the suspects is seen falling out of the back of the pickup truck as it starts to drive away.

The truck slowed so that the suspect could get back on the truck bed, as both vehicles drive off.

Police did not give the location of the alleged theft.
