TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (208)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Wednesday, February 25; link good at time of posting):
A bungling Australian car thief was nabbed after accidentally locking himself in the vehicle he was trying to steal, police said Wednesday.

Police were called to a house in Adelaide after two thieves were heard trying to steal a car. On arrival they were surprised to find a 53-year old man hiding inside the vehicle.

"The man, while breaking into the car, had locked himself in the car and couldn't get out," South Australian police said, adding a second thief was found hiding in nearby bushes.
