CANBERRA (Reuters) - A bungling Australian car thief was nabbed after accidentally locking himself in the vehicle he was trying to steal, police said on Wednesday.
Police were called to a house in Adelaide after two thieves were heard trying to steal a car. On arrival they were surprised to find a 53-year old man hiding inside the vehicle.
“The man, while breaking into the car, had locked himself in the car and couldn’t get out,” South Australian police said, adding a second thief was found hiding in nearby bushes.
