What would you do if you noticed who you thought was the same man try to burglarize your business for the second time in less than 3 weeks? Lock him in? That's what one business owner did.
It happened at Lightning Car Wash in South Sioux City on January 10th, a man caught on security tape seeming to attempt to break into a coin deposit box.
The tools apparently didn't work, so the man drove off with nothing.
Now, here's where it gets interesting.
Just 2 and a half weeks later, Lightning Car Wash owner Rob Beller thought he recognized the same car and man attempting to burglarize the car wash again on Tuesday.
His wife, Amanda explains what happened next.
"This is the bay where he pulled in both the first time, the original time with the attempt, and then the second time when we realized who was here and shut the power down," said Amanda Beller.
Her husband turned off the power, essentially, locking the man's car in the stall.
In the meantime, Beller called the police and the man was arrested on the spot.
"I was completely impressed with his cool thinking because you're so angry about someone trying to rob you and he had the wherewithal to just shut down the power and contain the guy and call the police," said Amanda Beller.
Aside from some damage to the coin deposit box, the car wash didn't sustain any losses. But the owners definitely gained a story that they'll share for a long time to come.
According to the Bellers, the suspect claimed innocence when speaking to the police officers.
