A Burglar Butt Dials Cops While Robbing Home


It might be wise to turn off your cell phone when in the middle of committing a crime.

Police in Britain say they arrested two suspects after they accidentally called them during a break-in. The two men were allegedly trying to get into a Staffordshire home when one of them happened to butt-dial the emergency number. In England it's 999.

Responding officers heard most of the illegal act before showing up to arrest them. They could actually hear their own sirens on the call as the crooks start to try and run away actually saying which direction they should run.

The police chief posted that he had dubbed them the "world's unluckiest bandits."
