LOCKSCREEN: LOCKED ON: American locksmith is in hot water after police said he stole $4,000 worth of jewellery from a store and made off with it.
A security guard found the keys and told the owner to call the police.
Now the locksmith says he is “deeply saddened” by the incident.
The locksmith told police that he has stolen a total of $4.5k worth of items, including jewellery and other items.
“I’m a thief, but I don’t have to be a thief,” he said.
“I have stolen more than $5,000.
I’ve stolen jewellery, I’ve taken credit cards, Ive stolen iPhones and iPads.”
He said he has “made a lot of money” but wants to make a change.
The locksmith said that he was robbed at gunpoint in front of a jewellery store in Pensacola in the past.
He said he was “extremely angry” when he was approached by a security guard, who was “very upset”.
“He said to me ‘you can’t do this’ because I’m a locksmith,” he added.
After he left the store, the locksman called the police, who arrived at his house and found the thief with stolen jewellys.
When officers arrived at the locksmarter’s house, they found the locks and keys and said that they were in the process of recovering the items, but they did not tell him where they were.
He admitted that he had stolen jewells and credit cards.
However, he told the police that the items were in his home and would be safe in the back of a police car.
According to the lockslayer, he is not a member of the local locksmith club.
He also said that there were no security cameras at his home, so it was impossible to see where the jewellery was.
But he admitted to stealing jewellery that belonged to his brother, who works at a lockshop in Pensack, Florida.
As a result, the local jewellery shop owner is now going to sue the locksmaker for $4k in damages.
Meanwhile, the police chief is urging the public to stay away from the lockslayers homes.
A locksmith has been charged with breaking into a locks business in New York, but the man was never arrested for the crime.
In the past, locksmiths have been accused of breaking into homes, but never prosecuted for the theft of valuable items.
