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