Kadir Aslan (37) boarded a bus in Malatya for a trip to his home-
town in Gaziantep. Sitting next to Aslan on the bus was Turan Öğüt
(56) who offered Aslan some sweets and nuts. After eating the
food Aslan fell asleep and didn't wake up when the bus stopped
in Adıyaman for a break.
The bus hostess, failing to revive Aslan, noticed that Öğüt was trying
to quietly slip away so she alerted the police. Now awake, Aslan
told police that 7,000 Turkish Lira had been stolen from his pocket.
Police then nabbed Öğüt who had the doctored sweets and the
stolen money on his person. Öğüt was arrested and taken to jail.
