Calif burglary suspect calls for ride, cop answers

Posted: Updated:

WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) — Police say a burglary suspect in Southern California made a bad call when he dialed a friend to ask for a ride and an officer answered.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune says police in Whittier had detained four people they thought were trying to break into cars around 4 a.m. Tuesday, when a suspect's cell phone rang.

Sgt. Brent Anderson says an officer answered. The caller told him that he had loot from another burglary and needed to be picked up.

Police obliged.

Altogether, three men, a woman and a 16-year-old male were arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen property.
