Authorities say that two people in the state of Florida were arrested after one of them made a 911 call to get help with moving their belongings from a home they were burglarizing, according to the Associated Press.
Per the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, police officers responded to a home Saturday after a 911 call was made but nobody spoke and while at the home officers concluded that nobody lived there, but they found a male suspect and his girlfriend inside the home after entering it through an unlocked door.
Apparently when talking to officers, the female suspect told them that she had called 911 for the purpose of having law enforcement help them move their belongings from the house they were burglarizing, adding that they also wanted to get a ride to the airport so they could spend the weekend in New York.
“Deputies DID help them with their belongings, and DID give them a ride, but it wasn’t to the airport … it was to the Polk Pokey,” Polk County Sherrif’s office said in a post on their Facebook page. “And they are welcome to stay there all weekend long. The Polk Pokey is much better than New York anyway.”
The male suspect was charged with burglary and theft related to the store and also burglary of a residence while the female suspect was charged with burglary of a residence.
