This criminal got luckier than two four-leaf clovers & a Powerball winner.
Stockholm police officer Mikaela Kellner was chillin’ at the beach with her friends last week, when a sneaky scumbag nabbed her friend’s cell phone.
Kellner, an 11-year veteran of the Stockholm police, was minding her own business, trying to get a tan, (as most Swedes are doing this time of year). Being off-duty as she was, her attire of choice was, a patriotic, star speckled bikini.
According to the Swedish news site, The Local, Kellner and her friends were approached by a man who was pretending to sell newspapers to help the homeless. When the man was rebuffed, he stuck around, and pulled a fast one.
Kellner knew something was fishy about the guy – probably her ninja cop instincts coming into play. She told her friends to keep on eye on their belongings while the guy loitered around their stuff.
Sure enough, right after the faux philanthropist left, one of Kellner’s friends said that her cell phone was missing.
Kellner, an extreme workout aficionado, explained to The Local that the man had used the newspapers to cover the cell phone. No one noticed as he made his escape with it.
Kellner’s Ninjacop powers activated immediately. There was no time to waste. She ran after the crafty criminal with all of her bikini-clad might. Kellner caught up to the phone nabber after about 30 yards, and she face-planted him into the ground.
En stackars hemlös kille som man kan tro försöker göra rätt för sig. Han säljer tidningar istället för att tjuva!! När vi avböjer att köpa hans tidningar passar han på att stjäla min kompis mobiltelefon!! Väldigt skickligt av honom då han smyger ner sina tidningar över mobilen och får sedan med sig den med lätthet!! Osis för denna kille att han råkade sno av två poliser????!! Mitt första ingripande iklädd bikini under mina 11 år som polis!! Ganska kul och trivsamt måste jag säga ??! Se upp för ficktjuvar, håll koll på era värdesaker!!
One of Kellner’s friends who was with her that day is also an officer with the Stockholm Police Department. She assisted Kellner with the takedown.
Once the frenetic phone freak was safely restrained, Kellner & friends called on-duty cops to take him away to face justice.
Kellner told The Local,
“I just acted on instinct and didn’t think about it so much until after we had pinned him down. When I sat there I looked over at our other two friends who are not police officers and realized that it probably looked pretty funny. But I would have stepped in no matter my outfit.”
“I’ve had a lot of positive comments both from friends and colleagues. It happens all the time that valuables are taken like this and often you don’t notice they’re gone until later. I mainly just wanted to raise awareness of how cunning these people are, almost like magicians.”
A few workout videos ninja cop girl posted to her Instagram account show how she’s able to take down criminals in the epic fashion she does.
I think it’s safe to say there might be a small crime wave in Stockholm while Kellner is off-duty. Who Wouldn’t want to be tackled by that bikini-clad, Ninjacop, crime fighting beauty?
From all of us here in the States, good work, officer Kellner!
