No Honor Among Thieves

A man in Kennewick, Washington left his vehicle running while it was unattended, and another person jumped into the truck and fled the scene. This is an everyday occurrence, but the truck owner’s reason for leaving the vehicle running is simply perfect.

A man’s pickup truck was stolen while he was busy stealing items from a business across the street. The owner of the vehicle, William A. Kelley, 42, called police Sunday morning saying that someone had stolen his red, 1992 Chevy pick-up.

The suspect, riding by on a 10-speed bicycle, saw the keys had been left in the seat, threw his bike in the bed of the truck and fled.

Investigators reviewed surveillance video of the incident and discovered that Kelley had left his truck because he was off stealing items from a business across the street.

If there’s any justice, both thieves will eventually share the same jail cell.

    RG – It’s definitely going to be one of some Washington blogger’s True Police Stories.

    Mushdogs – Notice how the camera doesn’t show his six fingers and tail.

    MelP – You’d be surprised how many people think True Detective Stories are made up. As if I had that active an imagination.


  2. Wyatt, I work @ the welfare dept in my county, so not really surprised about what I read in your TD stories. Saddened yes, resigned yes, Surprised? not anymore.
