Lock-maker locked up for lock-picking

It's always sad when a locksmith turns to the dark side. And yet that seems to be the case, as police found one putting his skills to use with a gang of motorbike thieves on Friday.

Police were alerted by a security guard at the capital’s City Mall who noticed the locksmith, along with two accomplices, slowly moving from vehicle to vehicle in the parking lot for no apparent reason.

Cops detained the trio – ages 26, 28 and 36 – along with the locksmith’s tools. All three are still being questioned.
