Two men are caught in the act by technology. But it wasn’t any fancy police gear that busted them; it was their own phone.
The two would be crooks were about to break into a car in Fresno, California when one of the men called 911 from his phone in his pocket.
Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart were about to break into a car when they dialed 911. The dispatcher answered and heard a conversation. Here’s some of what he heard:
“I just want to smoke weed so bad right now” and “give me the bolt and give me the hammer just in case,” all before hearing glass breaking in the background.
After the dispatcher tracked them down, an officer was sent to their location. Leading to even more location, all heard through the phone.
“He’s following the (expletive) out of you, bro,” one of the suspects said. The other said in reply, “Wow, what the (expletive) did I do?”
Police arrived and pulled them over. The officer didn’t tell them what they did, instead he asked one of the suspects if he had anything in the vehicle that “shouldn’t be in the vehicle.”
One of the men said no but as the officer searched the car, he found property lifted from the vehicle. That’s when the officer finally let them in on their mistake.
“We really called 911?” one of the suspects said. “Damn.”
Both men were arrested and face charges of breaking and entering, possession of stolen property and conspiracy.
