Thieves in progress dial 911, get arrested

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Some unlucky thieves in Stockton were trying to steal a bamboo plant out of someone's yard when one of them accidentally dialed 911.

Stockton police listened for more than 10 minutes as the three men talked about the crime they were committing.

"It's really nice when a suspect takes the time, while committing a crime, to call 911 and let us know where they're at and what they're doing," said Pete Smith of the Stockton Police Department.

The men were arrested a few blocks away.

They were cited and released.
