Man Tries to Rob Woman Sleeping in Back of Car in Church Parking Lot

There's all sorts of karma going on in this story.

A woman was napping in the back of a car in the parking lot of the Lighthouse Baptist Church Sunday afternoon. Her family was inside at the service. She was not. That's a double whammy of tempting fate — skipping church by sleeping outside the church.

William Marsh was walking by looking for something valuable to snatch. The opportunist saw the woman's purse sitting next to her in the vehicle and didn't so much mind that the woman was right there. In a brazen and utterly stupid move, he busted out the car's window to grab the goods. Shockingly, this woke her up.

According to the Sandusky Register, the woman was able to latch a hand on the purse before Marsh could make a clean getaway. She fought and yelled and made a general ruckus. Alas, Marsh eventually wrestled away the score and made off, only to be tracked down later by cops and booked on charges of burglary, robbery, and theft.

Maybe the next time she wants to blow off church, she'll do so in the safety of her own home and not in the parking lot, taking the unnecessary risk of enduring karmic justice. And maybe next time — because, who are we kidding, there will be a next time — Marsh will steer clear of targeting churches and/or occupied cars.
