In the news, man finds an ingenious way to get the cops to his house – quickly…
The text of the newspaper article reads:
Going to bed the other night, I noticed people in my shed stealing things. I phoned the police but was told no one was in the area to help. T hey said they would send someone over as soon as possible.
I hung up. A minute later I rang again. “Hello,” I said, “I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed. You don’t have to hurry now, because I’ve shot them.”
Within minutes there were half a dozen police cards in the area plus helicopters and an armed response unit. They caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the officers said, “I thought you said you’d shot them?”
To which I replied, “I thought you said there was no on available.”
