* An inept burglar figured he had too much loot from a Connecticut apartment to carry down the street so he called for a cab and no one came to get him, he called again and waited, and again and again. Before the cab got there the police did and arrested him with the goods. He complained to the cops as he went to jail, “I will never call that cab company again.”
* A man called 911 reporting he had been robbed of more than $2000 in cash. Police were dispatched and they found the man beaten, bruised, and very angry. It took the police only a few minutes to get there because they head been summoned just a few minutes before to respond to a bank robbery in the same area. The attacked man turned out to be the bank robber, who was mugged shortly after the heist.
* A man entered a Baltimore, Maryland, branch of Signet bank, walked straight to the teller, and handed her a note. The note demanded money and the teller as trained, gave the robber the cash without any static. She then set off the silent alarm that rings the local police station. The robber took the money and wanting to see how much he had snagged, walked over to a nearby counter and began counting his haul. He was still in the process of tallying his take when police took him away.
