|'World's unluckiest burglars' arrested after calling police by accident|
Staffordshire police arrest two men on suspicion of burglary after one sits on phone and dials 999
As pocket dials go, it was a fairly costly one: two suspected burglars have been arrested after accidentally calling the police on themselves, officers have said.
Staffordshire police confirmed they arrested a 49-year-old and a 42-year-old after receiving a call from one of them, who appeared to have unwittingly sat on his phone.
Officers said they listened in to the call as the men carried out the burglary and could even hear their colleagues arrive to make the arrests.
“I think we have just arrested the world’s unluckiest burglars,” said Ch Insp John Owen.
Police said they arrested the two men in the Middleport area of Stoke-on-Trent on suspicion of burglary after receiving the “suspicious call” on Wednesday evening. They were still in custody on Thursday morning.
