Broke worker breaks bad and snatches bag

A construction worker who tried to snatch a woman’s bag while she was offering food to a monk quickly got his karmic retribution.

The woman shouted for help and the suspect soon found himself with a mob of villagers and cops hot on his heels.

They apprehended the alleged thief, who is now awaiting his court date. Police say that he turned to bag snatching because he was dead broke.
