A woman opened up a can of worms – quite literally – when she stole a package containing live bugs. The incident took place in Apopka, Florida, reports Action News Jax.
The unidentified woman, according to CCTV footage obtained by police, swiped a package from the front porch of Shelly Draves’ home. Unfortunately for her, the package contained superworms, the worm-like larvae of darkling beetles.
The superworms had been ordered for a bearded dragon that Shelly’s son keeps as a pet. The woman reportedly dropped the box from her car a few blocks away.
and a neighbour returned it to Draves’ doorstep, according to Yahoo News.
“So I hope this woman is happy to steal from others. Let’s say she got her karma today,” wrote Shelly in a Facebook post, sharing two screenshots from the CCTV footage.
The post has collected over 100 shares since it was posted on Tuesday, along with a ton of comments.
“But I laughed when I read what she got for it!!!” writes one commenter. “I wish there was a picture of her face when she realized what she stole… That would have been funny,” says another.
In another incident of instant karma in Florida, a clumsy thief who hit his head and dropped the cash register while fleeing had thousands laughing in April this year.
