Monk Fights Back After Being Robbed While Buying Lottery Tickets

By: Troy Frisby

Talk about bad karma: Philadelphia police are on the lookout for a thief who robbed a monk.

The man was recored on surveillance video, stealing $350 from a 61-year-old Buddhist monk at a gas station.

In the video, the suspect can be seen milling around for a bit. Seconds later, the monk is shown putting money in a lottery machine, and he immediately notices the lurker.

It's unclear what happens next, though it appears as if they may be having a conversation.

Then the video cuts to the thief running out of the store with the monk right behind him, and a fight ensues outside.

But as Buddhist scholar Aaliyah once said, "If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again."

So the monk got up and approached the suspect's vehicle to stop him, but the jerk got away.

It certainly doesn't make the crime acceptable, but it should be pointed out that the monk technically isn't supposed to be handling money.

But it's just further prove that Powerball fever is here and it's real.
