This car thief never stood a chance when he thought it might be a good idea to steal a BMW! Apparently it was a really tough job, so he decided to take a little cat nap after his big heist. However, when he woke up, he found that he had been remotely locked inside the stolen BMW and cops were outside waiting to arrest him.
Earlier in the evening, the thief was out prowling cars and came upon an unlocked BMW in a parking garage. He quickly took advantage after he found the keys inside the vehicle, hopped in and sped off!
The owner soon realized her car was missing and called the cops. She had gotten married the previous day and had loaned the car to a friend, who mistakenly left the keys inside the BMW.
Luckily, BMW has a great remote app that can be used when a car gets stolen, so the cops contacted BMW corporate for some help. They were able to quickly track the vehicle and lock the doors, as the man was asleep in the driver’s seat.
When corporate locked the car, a message was blared across the speakers inside saying something along the lines of “I’m not locked in here with you, you’re locked in here with me!” Serves him right!
The 38-year-old sleepy thief was also carrying a small amount of methamphetamine. He was booked into jail for auto theft and drug possession.
At least he’ll have plenty of time to catch up on that much needed sleep!
