Things didn’t quite go the way William Kelly planned on Sunday morning. While he was busy robbing a store, some scumbag thief had the nerve to drive off with his truck. Of course, he immediately called the cops.
Kennewick, Washington must be a seriously high crime area. Even the thieves get ripped off there. About 6 a.m., Kelly clocked in to work. He left the keys to his red 1992 Chevy pickup on the seat for a couple of reasons. First, he knew he wasn’t going to be long, and second, he knew when he came out he was going to be in a hurry.
Kelly was amazed when he came out of the building that he just robbed, to find someone driving away in his truck. Surveillance video shows him angrily slamming a sack of booty against his own truck as it speeds away.
Kennewick Police Department simply had to share the details on their Facebook page. “Video was obtained of the incident and a new fact was discovered. Kelley was at the location because he was stealing items from a business across the street.”
The footage shows the truck thief riding around on his bicycle before stashing it in the back of the red truck. He can be seen casually driving away and an astonished Mr. Kelley running after him.
Kelley’s truck has not been recovered yet, the Tri-City Herald reports.
Comments are hilarious. One that was notable said, “Is there no honor amongst thieves?? Sigh, the world we live in.” Most people see the lesson in what happened. “That’s the fastest I’ve ever seen karma work,” wrote one person, another simply, “The irony.” Kelley should have gone to church instead. If he did, he would still have his truck and his freedom.
Kelly will be staying at the Benton County gray bar hotel for a while, checked in under a previous reservation. He had an outstanding warrant as well as the burglary charge.
