Quick! Hide! It’s the cops! Except it wasn’t.

Okay, so you’ve broken into a disused building to steal metal and you suddenly hear what you think is the police searching for you. What do you do? Hide in the duct work, of course…for five hours. Turns out though that what you heard wasn’t the cops. It was another metal thief who thought you were the cops and hid on the roof.

When the real police got there, after a call to the emergency number alerted them to strange goings on, their dog quickly found the guy in the duct work and shortly afterward found the one on the roof.

“Book ’em, Dano!”
