I love stupid criminals. They make me feel so good about myself! If your 2023 is off to a bad start, just remember: you're doing a LOT better than these two!
In Polk County, two criminals got arrested for burglary after they called the cops to ask for some help moving some stuff they were stealing. Yes. You read that right.
Deputies responded to a home Saturday after a 911 call was made but nobody spoke, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said. At the home, the deputies concluded that nobody lived there, but they found a male suspect and his girlfriend inside the home after entering it through an unlocked door.
Deputies had been searching for the male suspect after identifying him from security video as a burglar at a Dollar General store in Poinciana, Florida, where several items were stolen earlier in the day, the sheriff's office said in a statement. Poinciana is about 35 miles (55 kilometers) south of Orlando.
While talking to deputies, the female suspect told them that she had called 911 for the purpose of having law enforcement help them move their belongings from the house they were burglarizing.
Deputies DID give them a hand...but probably not in the way they were hoping. The 5-0 gave them a ride to the county jail, and they were charged with burglary. Isn't it so nice when the criminals make the job easier for our law enforcement officers?
