This has got to make the next episode of that World’s Dumbest Criminals show.
Whoopsie Daisy of the Day: A pair of burglars were busted yesterday by Madison police after one of the men accidentally butt-dialed 911 while the two were chatting about their latest heist.
According to a police report, 29-year-old Jason S. Hamielec and 28-year-old Brian A. Johnson went on and on about their intent to sell DVDs and video games they stole from Target, providing authorities with a description of their vehicle, and the location of the store where they were planning to offload their stolen merch.
As soon as the thieves arrived at their destination, police swarmed the scene and arrested them. As neither had bothered to hang up the phone, a dispatcher was still on the line at the time, and could hear the whole thing go down.
