Neighbors trap thief in car he tries to steal.
“A car thief gets trapped by Swansea residents inside the vehicle he was trying to steal, afterwards, he asks the owner’s neighbours to move their car so that he could make his escape.
Matthew Draper, aged 27, of Carmarthen Road was caught by a group of neighbours trying to steal a Smart Roadster in Swansea.
They held the doors of the vehicle shut, despite Draper threatening them with a screwdriver, so that he could not escape and waited for the police to arrive.
Draper pleaded guilty at Swansea Crown Court criminal damage and theft.
He has a number of previous convictions including offences of assault, shoplifting and burglary. He was jailed for 32 months.”
A guy tried to steal a nice car,
But he didn’t get very far;
Some neighbors got riled,
The guy was beguiled,
Now he sits behind iron bars.
He threatened his captors with harm,
But the people weren’t alarmed,
He had a sharp tool,
He was acting cruel,
He found himself quickly disarmed.
The man’s a professional crook,
Causing pain over things he took;
But some good Swansea neighbors,
Put an end to his labors,
There’s a video, just take a look.
