Florida Burglars Calls Cops To Help Them Move Stolen Stuff, Got Arrested Instead



Two people in Florida are now behind bars after calling 911 to help them move stuff they were stealing from another home, according to authorities.

The New York Post reported on Tuesday that “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.”

The man they found at the home was a burglar they had been looking for who had appeared on a security cam stealing from a Dollar General store in the area.

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. They also wanted to get a ride to the airport so they could spend the weekend in New York, the sheriff’s office said.

“Deputies DID help them with their belongings, and DID give them a ride, but it wasn’t to the airport … it was to the Polk Pokey,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post. “And they are welcome to stay there all weekend long. The Polk Pokey is much better than New York anyway.”

The Sheriff’s office revealed that the male suspect was charged with burglary and theft related to the store and also burglary of a residence. The female suspect was charged with burglary of a residence.
