Thats what you call Karma! The criminal was apparently trying to either steal the car or steal something from inside the car when the owner of the vehicle saw him and instantly used the remote control to lock the man inside the automobile.
Captain Colette Weilbach said a 22-year-old motorist had parked his vehicle in Burnett Street, Hatfield. She said the driver had difficulties locking his car and left it unlocked while he ran into the shop for 10 minutes.
When he returned, he found an unknown man inside his vehicle, busy searching for items to steal, Weilbach said.
“The motorist remained clearheaded and used the remote control to lock the suspect inside the vehicle.”
The driver of the vehicle called the police while the offender remained stuck in the car. Brooklyn police arrived on the scene and arrested the 33-year-old suspect.
Since being caught red-handed, the culprit didn’t manage to steal anything but did appear in the Hatfield Community Court on Monday and will face full prosecution.
