Alleged phone thief calls 911 because victim won’t leave her alone

When he accused them of taking his device, he reported that the couple began punching and kicking him and then ran off the bus. He followed them, and the boyfriend ran away while the woman paused to call 911. Komo News reported that police arrived on the scene, and the woman continued to insist that she had not taken the phone until officers noticed a phone-shaped bulge in her pocket.

First  thought. The boyfriend is some stand up kind of guy. I do have to admit that at least he was smart enough to know that calling 9-1-1 when you’ve just stolen a phone is not very bright.

Second thought. If you’re going to steal a phone, don’t call the police because the rightful owner is chasing. Also, don’t make it worse by committing an assault and battery on the victim.

Third thought. Wear clothes that aren’t so tight that they outline what’s in your pockets.

Final thought. If you are going to do any or all of the above, it’s better not to have Crack Cocaine on you. BTW, isn’t Crack like totally 1990s?

As the saying goes, that’s why they call it dope. Or is that doap?

After a long career as a field EMS provider, I'm now doing all that back office stuff I used to laugh at. Life is full of ironies, isn't it? I still live in the Northeast corner of the United States, although I hope to change that to another part of the country more in tune with my values and beliefs. I still write about EMS, but I'm adding more and more non EMS subject matter. Thanks for visiting.
