A man has been caught on camera stealing $600 in cash from a vending machine – while brazenly wearing a shirt that brags about theft.

Video from Twin City Coin Laundry in Crystal City, Missouri shows the words ‘It’s not a crime unless you get caught’ splashed across the back of the suspect’s T-shirt.

The security footage from the incident last Monday shows him opening a bag on a table at the laundromat.

He then looks around to make sure no one is watching and heads over to the soda machine.

Despite no one around, he carries out the theft in full view of a HD security camera that managed to pick up the bold statement on his back.

It also shows him fiddle with the machine until a door is released allowing him to reach inside for the money.

The suspect crouches down to take out a number of silver boxes that contain change and continues to keep watch as he pours the contents into a black duffel.
