    A man's truck was stolen while he was robbing a store across the street, police say

    A Washington man who reported his truck as stolen was arrested after police determined he was robbing a store when the vehicle was taken.
    William Kelley, 42, told police he'd left his red 1992 Chevy pickup truck in a parking lot after a night out a tavern, according to a release from the Kennewick Police Department. When he returned to pick it up early Sunday, he said, he left the keys on the seat and went to find a bathroom.
    Surveillance footage of the area obtained by police shows a man on a bicycle ride by and spot the keys. The thief can then be seen tossing his bike in the back and fleeing the scene.
    Kelley called police to report the theft, but because he had a prior warrant for his arrest, he was booked.
    "And then the story got real interesting," police said.


    Upon closer inspection of video from the tavern, police discovered that Kelley had driven to the location that morning, then went into a business across the street to steal items.
    "His truck was stolen as he was stealing items," police said. "He was booked for burglary."
    Kelley's vehicle has still not been located, and police asked the public for assistance identifying the car thief.

    @Stratovarious this is irony right? @Occam's Banana

    What a way to start my day, too damn funny. H ha.........

    I wonder if the two will share a cell, both felons right, unless the truck wasn't
    worth whatever the min 'statute' amount is.

    A 'B' movie; The two share a cell, break out of jail, continue to commit crimes
    that fail, fail , fail.

    You are correct, sir! /Ed-McMahon-voice

    This is coincidence.

    It's not ironic, because there's nothing about being a thief that leads one to expect that thieves are less likely than other people to be robbed by other thieves.

    (Perhaps the opposite, given the "no honor among thieves" thing - though that doesn't really seem to apply here, since it doesn't appear that the truck thief knew that the truck owner was also a thief.)

    I suppose you could say that it's ironic that the truck-owning thief got caught because he reported the theft of his truck (since you wouldn't expect a thief to expose himself to the attention of law enforcement like that). But even that seems more like a case of stupidity than of irony ...
