A truck driver who stuck a few dangling robbers in their tracks and then offered some life advice while sitting on one of them, left host Karl Stefanovic today in stitches.
New Zealand man Turawaho Hemopo, known as ‘T’ to his friends, appeared on the program on Friday morning about the hilarious story.
He told how he thwarted the crime when he delivered goods to a Coles supermarket in Yarrabilba on the southern outskirts of Brisbane on 27 February.
T said he was driving his truck to the Coles when he noticed a lady waving him from the nearby medical center.

“I was like that” hello? “Frankly, I didn’t know what she was waving at,” said T.
He said she kept waving, so he jumped out of his truck and the woman told him that two men were robbing the pharmacy next door.
T said he asked, “Right now?” in disbelief, the woman said, “Yes, right now,” so he told her to wait there while checking the situation.
When he saw the two swinging burglars, he said to them, “Friend, what are you up to?” and they turned and approached him.
T wasn’t sure if they had weapons, so he stepped back and the first thief ran past him.
“I was like, buddy, you escaped. The second guy looked at me and I thought you were not going anywhere, dude, “he remembered.
Enthralled host Karl Stefanovic asked what happened next, to which T replied that he tackled the second offender.
The mugger first struggled but soon gave up and told T that he was 15.
After he had a teenage son himself, T said that his paternal instinct went into effect and he decided to give some advice.

‘I was like that, buddy, I have a 15-year-old son, why are you dealing with these drop-kicks? They are not good for you. As if you have your whole life in front of you, buddy. ”
He said the child offered him a $ 200 bribe to let him go, but he just pointed to his truck and told him he already had a job.
The interview ended with the hero car that invited a very amused Karl for a barbecue.
The police also thanked T for his role in arresting the thieves.
