A 15-year-old suspected thief was in for a grilling on Wednesday for allegedly robbing a capital grocery vendor after failing to sell him a gas cooker.
After his sales pitch failed, the teen left but returned later when the owner was asleep, nabbing $50 and jewellery.
Upon waking up and noticing the missing goods, the vendor conferred with neighbours, scooped up the youngster and dished him off to cops.
Despite seeing no sign of the necklace or cash, officers went ahead with interrogation, sensing it would bear fruit.
