Florida Burglars Call 911 To Ask For Help With Stolen Goods In another stupid criminal story out of Florida, two thieves are behind bars after one of them called 911 to ask for help moving stolen property out of a house they were burglarizing. The incident happened Saturday in Poinciana, where the Polk County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call in which the other person hung up without speaking, a rep says. Deputies responded to the address the call was made from and found a man and a woman burglarizing a home. The woman, who hasn’t been identified, told them she’d made the call to ask for assistance in carrying out items they were stealing from the home, sheriff’s officials say. She’d also planned on asking for a ride to the airport so they could visit New York, according to deputies. Instead of helping the couple, sheriff’s deputies arrested them. “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,” reads a Facebook post by the sheriff’s office. “And they are welcome to stay there all weekend long. The Polk pokey is much better than New York anyway.” Why does Florida seem to produce such a high number of stupid criminal stories?
