WEIRD NEWS: Rob From the Robber
"If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" is good advice to anyone trying to battle a burglar – as one Florida man found when he foiled a robbery at his neighbor's house by stealing the crook's car keys.
The good Samaritan, whose name was not released, heard the sound of breaking glass from the house next door and then saw a stranger climbing through the window. When Timothy Woods saw that he had been spotted, he tried to duck inside the house, which gave the neighbor a chance to dart outside and swipe the keys from the ignition of Woods' car, which had been left running.
When cops arrived, Woods insisted he'd never been inside the house in the first place, but that he'd gone there to visit the home's owner, who said he had no idea who the burglar was. Woods has been charged with aggravated assault, firearm use, burglary, battery, criminal mischief and larceny. (NWF Daily News)
