The ‘Lock and key’ thief in Philadelphia was just the tip of the iceberg
Philadelphians may not be getting their lock and key lock, but a Philadelphia man is.
The thief is still on the loose and it could take days to get him out, according to authorities.
On Thursday, Philadelphia police said a man tried to steal a lock from a locksmith in the 700 block of W. 11th Street, but the locksmith had already made the lock himself.
A witness told police he heard a noise and saw the man walking away with a lock.
The lock is being held in a secure location at a local locksmith, police said.
