His first mistake was trying to buy $90 worth of beer and cigarettes at a gas station with a stolen credit card. His second mistake was using a stolen card that belonged to the cashier, according to Berlin police. The story was reported in a Reuters dispatch.
"When I looked at the credit card, I saw it was my name," the 33-year-old cashier explained to a German newspaper. He locked the man inside the shop and called the police. The credit card had been ordered but never arrived in the mail.
